I participated in the French memory championship and it was the first memory competition of my life and it was great experience. I’m also the first person in Israel who was competing in a memory competition, So I set few national records.
I set a national record for memorizing a deck of cards in 59 seconds
I set a national record for memorizing 3 decks of cards in 10 minutes
I set a national record for memorizing 160 numbers in 5 minutes
I set a national record for memorizing 300 numbers in 15 minutes
I set a national record for memorizing 70 spoken numbers
Surely that’s a world record
I had a mistake lol… I edited it
Not sure if that’s an interesting way of visualizing last weekend’s competition’s results for anyone else, but here’s the rankings’ evolution, event by event:
That’d be really nice as a video/gif that actually slides them up and down. Another nice one is the stacked bars, where you can see first through last in descending order by total, but can compare individual disciplines too.
I was considering making a dynamic version, but I felt that this static one was suited to perhaps adding sport commentary in the reporting of the results, you can generate these very quickly as soon as the results for an event are in and see what happened in the race to the different podiums.
