The 2017 Ontario Memory Championship
Toronto– June 25/2017 Metro Hall- Congratulations to Eric Yucong Li for winning the event and the title of 2017 Ontario Memory Champion. With the favorites unable to make it to the competition, Eric showed that perseverance does pay off. His time of 2 minutes 19 seconds is more than twice as fast as his former best competitive score achieved in the 2015 CMC. His victory was not as easy as the scores may suggest, with Jeremy managing a faster time on the first attempt but he was unable to reconstruct the deck perfectly. Howsikan Kugathasan finished in second place with 24 cards at each of his attempts after starting training with memory techniques less than 2 months ago! Congratulations to all participants.
2017 Ontario Kid’s Section
Mississauga- Six kids competed on Thursday June 8 for the title of 2017 Ontario Kid Memory Champion at Tomken Road Middle School, 3200 Tomken Rd, (Library).
According to Jeremy Valenciuk, the awesome teacher who made this competition possible, all went really well. The students had worked really hard all year and were extremely enthusiastic for the event.
Ryan Shrestha successfully memorized 15 cards at his second attempt to win the title and set the new memory record for the Kid’s Section in Ontario. Congratulations to all the students for their courage in participating in this demanding challenge!
Also a big thank to the many volunteers: Nicole D’Alessandro, John Lam, Katherine Arbuthnot and especially Jeremy Valenciuk who made this event possible.
Congratulations to David Russell for winning the first ever Manitoba Memory Championship!
Winnipeg– May 30/2017. As of today, we have our first ever memory champion for Manitoba, David Russell.
