In the end, the Quebec Provincial Memory Champion, Francis Blondin won it by establishing 3 new canadian memory records (in Speed Numbers, Words and Speed Cards). In second place, the BC Provincial Memory Champion, Braden Adams smashed the Canadian Names and Faces record (which was 30, held by Valerie Grenon) with 32 Names. (But Darren Michalczuk did the same thing with an even greater score of 36!) In third place, the Ontario Memory Champion Eric Li would have finished first at last year’s Canadian Memory Championship had he managed to obtain the same scores as he obtained this year, and he managed to win the Western Competition in Edmonton, ahead of Braden Adams on a tie braker.
