The draw for the World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships has taken place in Astana on July 5th 2012. The Rapid Championship takes place 6th-8th July (5 Rounds per day) and Blitz 9th-10th july 2012 (15 Rounds per day). July saw FIDE's new Rapid and Blitz ratings but most of the players including Magnus Carlsen don't have ratings so the conventional ratings have been used. Play starts at 10am each day BST 11am CET 3pm local time. Full pairings in the body of the article.

If the pairings table seems too wide then the new syle sheet I had to produce hasn't been loaded by your computer. Information on the draw came from a ChessVibes report on the opening ceremony.
