8 year old Nigerian boy comes 2nd in UK Child Genius competition
Aug 12th, 2014
8 year old Tudor Mendel-Idowu and his sister 11 year old Hazelle Mendel-Idowu (pictured above) were the only Nigerians to take part in the Child Genius of the Year 2014 in the UK.
The competition consists of 20 gifted youngsters between 7-12 who face two grueling rounds: Logic and Reasoning and Memory Recall – where they have just one hour to commit 104 randomly shuffled playing cards to memory.
Hazel Mendel-Idowu was out of the competition in the second round but Tudor Mendel-Idowu scaled through to the final stage on Sunday August 10th and made it up to 2nd position.
11 year old Sharon from Bolton won the competition. Tudor Mendel-Idowu is the son of Pastor and Mrs Tolu Mendel-Idowu from Nigeria. Congrats to him…
