The yearly competition comprises of ten events over three days testing the memory of the very elite memorisers in the world. Remembering the order of a shuffled deck of playing cards, thousands of digits of numbers, hundreds of names and faces and 400 spoken numbers at every one-second interval are only a few of the events that are on the competition agenda.
One of those very elite who is representing Australia is Tansel Ali, who has recently memorised two Yellow Pages phonebooks in just 24 days and has won the last two Australian Memory Championships. Tansel, who represented Australia in the World Memory Championships back in 2003, believes he is a good chance of bringing Australia its first ever gold medal from London.
