Another Guinness World Record inscription coming through
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.
