Another Near Miss For Wales In Brain Of Britain Final

Wales was denied quiz glory on the BBC for a second time in as many months in the 2019 Brain of Britain final.

It was the turn of the Welsh vice-captain, Gareth Aubrey, to take on some of the UK’s finest quizzers in the deciding encounter of the 66th edition of the long-running Radio 4 competition.

The final vindicated the form book, however, as David Stainer led from the off to add the Brain of Britain title to a bulging trophy cabinet that already included numerous domestic and international medals and an Only Connect series title.

The result also showed once again the strength of both the UK quizzing circuit and particularly the Quiz League of London, with both David and runner-up Frankie Fanko regularly taking part in both competitions. We’d recommend that anyone looking to have a go at Brain of Britain try out some of these sorts of Events to help their preparation.
