At the USA Memory Championship, “Mental Athletes” compete in brain-breaking events including the memorization of a string of 1,000 random digits, two decks of shuffled cards, 99 names and faces, 100 spoken words and an unpublished 50-line poem. In this tournament, challengers from from around the country vie for the title of “USA National Memory Champion”. High school teams are competing to become the High School Team Memory Champ.
