KenKen Championship in Ningbo

 

China is to run its first junior KenKen Championship on 20 August 2022 at the local Cheese Park in Ningbo City, China’s Zhejiang Province.

 

Jointly organised by Ningbo 3C Sudoku with other two local partners, this pilot championship is designed for children under 16 who have finished several training sessions. Some prizes will be awarded to top three winners.

 

“But children from other cities are welcome for the championship,” said a spokesman from Ningbo 3C Sudoku which is the KenKen China appointed training centre in the Province.

Robert Fuhrer announced the top three junior winners in 2019 Championship From the left to right is the gold medal winner, silver medal winner and the bronze winner.

“I wish we could organise our world championship one day in China,” said Mr Robert Fuhrer, the Creator of KenKen sports and Chairman of KenKen International Federation.

 

“I have organised 10 KenKen World Championship in New York. Although KenKen championships are held in many other parts of the world, I feel that Chinese children are trained in a special way. In 2019, they only sent three children to attend our Championship, but they all in the top four for under 16 group,” said Mr Fuhrer.

 

There will be only two rounds of contests with puzzles arranged from 5X5 to 8X8.

“我非常希望有机会在中国举行一次世界锦标赛,”肯肯运动的创世者、 肯肯国际联合会的主席罗伯特福尔若先生听到此消息后很高兴地说道。

“ 我已经在紐約组织过十次正式世界锦标赛。虽然我们的肯肯印度、肯肯 迪拜也经常举行此类赛事,但我总是觉得中国的孩子非常独特地聪明。 2019 年,他们只来了一个儿童组,三个人居然进入了前四名。再看看近 几年的国际数独赛事,那些中国年轻人不仅优秀,而且新人不断。”
