Canada, meet your National Geographic World Championship team
Winning the National Geographic World Championship requires teamwork, focus, and a near-encyclopedic knowledge of geography. And Canadians are apparently pretty good at this -- we came in 2nd place in 2011.
This year's team of bright young teenagers is hoping to top that; they're in Ottawa for some last-minute training before leaving tomorrow for St. Petersburg, Russia. We were joined by 15-year-old Spencer Zhao of Toronto, 16-year-old Kyle Richardson of Kitchener, and 15-year-old Jacob Burnley of Nanaimo, B.C.
