*Simon memorized a perfect 84 names, that is ALL the names that were available on the memorization sheet.

Fun fact: Johannes also memorized 124 words, but since he misspelled two words he ended up with 122 and Simon got the WR. :wink:

Idriz wrote, that it was corrected to “just” 83, since Simon made one typo - which does not make his performance any less impressive!
