The 2023 International Quizzing Championships kicked off this evening in Torremolinos, Malaga.
The first events, including qualifiers for the Nations Cup and the Aspirational Cup, get underway at 4.30pm local time.
The competition is held annually in various places across the globe and features the best quizzing knowledge the world has to offer.
Notable attendees you may know include Pat Gibson (2023 British Quizzing Champion and ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ winner), Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha (UK Chaser) and Victoria ‘The Queen’ Groce (US Chaser).
Event organiser, Jane Allan, said: “It’s a pretty big event, we have 153 people here, but they all pay to take part in it.”
“We have two people from Australia, we have people from San Francisco, all across Europe, it’s huge!”
She added: “These people (the quizzers) treat this as a sport, they actively compete against each other all the time.”
“For me, I am most looking forward to seeing Victoria Groce playing, she is on The Chase in the states (USA). It is quite male dominated, but Victoria stands head and shoulders above most of the people here.”
The competition comprises of six different events across a full weekend of quizzing action and will be concluded on Sunday evening with the Nations Cup Final.
