Mental Calculation World Cup 2012

When I started solving puzzles I was not even aware the there is World Puzzle Championship being held every year. I started solving Logical Puzzles i.e. World Puzzle Championship Style Puzzles in year 2000 but get to first participate in World Puzzle Championship in year 2004 in Croatia representing India. 
My daughter Evanthe Gupta is now 6 and half years old and thanks to her Brain O Brain weekly classes, she can do addition and subtraction in mind. It it really nice to know that there is Mental Calculation World Cup held once every two year. I was happy and surprised to see last world cup winner Priyanshi Somani was from India
