The 31st World Memory Championships Global Finals will be held in Suzhou, China from December 16 to 18, 2022. Due to the epidemic of COVID-19, athletes from different nations could not travel across nations, which means that we are unable to gather all atheletes to compete in the same country. Therefore, the Global Finals will be held in the same way just like it did last year. Competitors will compete in their respective countries and the final results will be summarized up by the Memory Sports Council of each country and submitted to Lester He, the global chief arbiter. The final result of the 2022 Global Finals will be announced by Raymond Keene OBE, the President of the World Memory Sports Council.
