Announcing: I'm competing again at the World Memory Championships!

I am once again competing at the World Memory Championships. This will be my fourth year in a row, and I'm training harder than ever. Just over the weekend I memorized 2,500+ digits of random numbers: 1,200 digits in one hour, and the rest in five-minute blocks. This will hopefully prepare me for both the Hour Numbers event and the Speed Numbers (5 minute) event, plus the other three disciplines that feature numbers.

This year's competition will be held in Chengdu, China on December 15-18. 

I'll be posting more details here, as well as my training schedule, pictures of the trip, etc. Stay tuned.
