Sri Lanka wins the 2023 Tournament of Minds at the World Congress of Neurology
The Tournament of Minds (ToM) is a quiz competition organized by the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) and conducted biennially as part of the World Congress of Neurology (WCN). The 10th ToM took place during the XXVI World Congress of Neurology in Montreal, Canada, from 15 to 19 October 2023. The objective of the ToM is to provide a captivating and educational experience for its participants, encompassing various aspects of neurology. This event is open to all participating countries, each of which has the opportunity to field multiple teams.
This year, the WCN registered over 3,500 participants from 133 different countries, including both onsite and online attendees. The ToM is structured into three distinct phases: heats, semi-finals, and finals. In this particular edition, the team representing Sri Lanka emerged as the winners. In previous years, the ToM was won by teams from Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Ireland, Hong Kong, and India. In the 2019 edition, the Sri Lankan team secured the runner-up position.
The triumphant Sri Lankan team in 2023 comprised Dr AT Alibhoy, Prof Thashi Chang, Dr Senaka Bandusena, and Dr Manjula Caldera.
