The Extreme Memory Tournament (XMT) Qualifiers 2016 in week number four was all about the Number discipline. The athletes had to memorize 80 digits, for which they had a maximum of 60 seconds, like in all XMT events. All top 16 qualified athletes did that task in much less than the given time.

The current XMT world record for 80 digits is 23,34 seconds by Simon Reinhard. This record was now topped by four people in the Qualifiers, although their results will not count officially as records. But the potential is there and we can expect a lot from the XMT in June.

Now let’s have a look what the top 16 qualification attempts for Numbers look like. Below you will find all the videos from the competitors. Enjoy!
