An­other Guin­ness World Record in­scrip­tion com­ing through

The UB Post - - Domestic -

Twenty-two mem­ory ath­letes ranked sec­ond as a team at the 27th World Mem­ory Cham­pi­onship held in Hong Kong from De­cem­ber 20 to 22.

Against over 260 com­peti­tors from 21 coun­tries, the team won four gold, three sil­ver and 11 bronze medals. Their over­all score of 22,830 points se­cured them sec­ond place at the cham­pi­onship, less than 400 points away from China.

In­ter­na­tional grand­mas­ter and 2017 ju­nior cham­pion E.Lkhag­vadu­lam not only won sec­ond place in the 2018 Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship, but also broke the world record in the bi­nary num­bers event. She mem­o­rized 5,597 dig­its in 30 min­utes, shat­ter­ing the pre­vi­ous record of 5,445 dig­its set by in­ter­na­tional grand­mas­ter N.Enkhshur.

Af­ter train­ing in mem­ory sports for three years, the 16-year-old cham­pion is get­ting her name in­scribed on the Guin­ness World Record for mem­ory sports. This is great news for the Mon­go­lian mem­ory team which has al­ready bro­ken Guin­ness World Records in April when twin sis­ters N.Munkhshur and N.Enkhshur set new world records by re­call­ing 5,445 dig­its in 30 min­utes and 1,924 cards in an hour re­spec­tively.

E.Lkhag­vadu­lam, who stud­ies in School No. 15 in Darkhan-Uul Province, holds 10 out of 18 world mem­ory records.
