Though some of us need notes to remember our own birthdays, others can memorize the order of a shuffled deck of cards in less than two minutes.

At the USA Memory Championship, "Mental Athletes" compete in brain-breaking events including the memorization of: a string of 1,000 random digits, two decks of shuffled cards, 99 names and faces, 100 spoken words and an unpublished 50 line poem. In this tournament, challengers from around the country vie for the title of "USA National Memory Champion".

The winner of the USA Memory Championship will win two round trip tickets to London from British Airways and automatically qualify to compete against champions of other countries in the World Memory Championships to be held in Bahrain, August 2007.
