Carlsen on "Time" List of Influential People

Today the April 29, 2013 issue of Time magazine goes on sale. In it, Time reveals the tenth annual "Time 100," which lists the 100 most influential people in the world including Magnus Carlsen.

For the first time, the issue features seven separate covers, each displaying a member of the "Time 100."

Magnus Carlsen, by Garry Kasparov: “I had the opportunity to train Carlsen in 2009, and his intuitive style conserves the mystique of chess at a time when every EPU-enhanced fan thinks the game is easy. Carlsen is as charismatic and independent as he is talented. If he can rekindle the world’s fascination with the royal game, we will one day be living in the Carlsen Era.”
