In recent years Singapore has produced several top memory athletes, one of them is the world record holder Sancy Suraj. He made himself a name for the first Singaporean to get a World Record in a memory category in 2011. We spoke to Sancy about his memory journey, training and goals.
How did you get into memory sports?
My first memory competition was in 2011 when I represented Singapore in the World Memory Championships in Guanzhou, china.
Why do you like memorizing?
I like pushing myself. When it comes to memorizing, it is me vs my brain’s ability to quickly store information.
How do you memorize?
I use a variety of memory techniques like the Roman Room Method, Journey Method and the Major System.
Can anyone do what you do?
Absolutely. I wasn’t born with this ability. I had to work on it.
