The Straits Times, 2 Oct 2017 - Article featured the second Singapore Open Memory Championships, held over the weekend at SP. The event is co-organised by SP, the SP Graduates' Guild and the Singapore Memory Sports Association (SMSA), and saw participants from 12 countries including Indonesia, England and Mongolia taking part. SP students, all of whom were taking part for the first time, made up 11 of Team Singapore's 14 memory athletes. Second-year Diploma in Engineering with Business student Cheng Yu chalked up several personal bests and climbed his way to 48th place among 82 competitors from around the world. Cheng Yu and a group of friends from SP formed an interest group two months ago to learn memory techniques, and they received training for the competition from SMSA president Wellon Chou and vice-president Gerald Lim, both of whom are SP alumni.
