This weekend past I participated in the Australian Open Memory Championships. I managed to secure second place behind my coach and reigning Australian champion, Tansel Ali, and third place in the open division.
I broke the Australian record for the abstract images event and am the official holder of that record, after memorizing the order of 99 abstract shapes.
I was also very pleased with my results in the numbers events, memorizing 200 digits in 15 minutes, and 99 digits in speed numbers (five minutes).
Most importantly, I learnt a lot and made some new friends! It was an extremely satisfying first competition.
