A 10-year-old girl from Jinan beat out most of the competition at the 24th World Mental Capacity Tournament in Chengdu, setting new records in the process.
According to NetEase, Yan Jiashuo was able to commit to memory an astonishing 1080 sequences of numbers and 646 random sequences of poker cards in an hour.
Over the course of 10 events, Yan managed to achieve a record breaking score of over 3000 points, fending off several of her far older peers.
Thanks to her magnificent memory, Yan managed to net the silver medal in the children’s event and the bronze during the poker card event. Her performance has earned her the title of Grand Master of Memory.
