Grand Master of Memory
First awarded in 1995, the title Grand Master of Memory is awarded to people who are able to successfully negotiate the following three memory feats:
- Memorise 1,000 random digits in an hour
- Memorise the order of 10 decks of cards in an hour
- Memorise the order of one deck of cards in under two minutes.
The standards need not be achieved at the World Memory Championships, nor do they need to be achieved at a single competition, but they must be achieved at competitions that have been officially approved and arbitrated by the World Memory Sport Council.
As of June 2012, there are 122 Grand Masters of Memory in the world.
