13 student teams from Armenia who practise intellectual games competed in the “Medicus Cup 2017”. The competition comprised 3 rounds with 12 questions each.
“We entered the competition with confidence and managed to take the lead right away, as this was not our first contest. We focused on the result and gave it our all”, said Karen Mnatsakanyan, team member.
The students also highlighted that the question they found the most interesting was about the ancient Greek orator Demosthenes, who used to speak with pebbles in his mouth to improve his speaking abilities.
“Brain Killers” received the Medicus Cup, the winner’s certificate and a set of books.
