I participated in the recent University Challenge held at the British High Commission in Ottawa. University Challenge is a British TV quiz program that first aired in 1962 and has appeared on both ITV and the BBC. Our informal local Challenge followed the traditional format and was moderated by no one less than the High Commissioner herself, Mrs. Susan le Jeune d’Allegeershecque CMG.
Our Cambridge team had to compete against Oxford, the London School of Economics (LSE) and Durham University. Despite having hit it out of the park in the round robin preliminaries, we were pipped at the post by LSE in the final round. Congratulations to LSE.
A fun night all around and a hearty thank you to the High Comm staff for organizing such an enjoyable event. Well done!
