New Millennium Standards

Following some spectacular performances at National and The World Memory Championships, the Millennium Standards have been analysed and revised. (Where the MS has been broken by at least three competitors, excluding electronic competitions, a new standard is derived)

As of January 31st 2019 the following standards will apply.
