Congratulations to Nelson Dellis – the new USA Memory Champion!
I saw the news on Twitter and Facebook. I’m hoping that full details will be published soon.
UPDATE: “In addition to winning the title, Nelson also set new US Records in Speed Numbers, 248 digits, and Speed Cards of 52 in 1:03.”
UPDATE: Nelson posted a writeup of the competition in his blog.
