Quiz: Are you smarter than these Scripps National Spelling Bee finalists?

A first-of-its-kind lightning-round tiebreaker has crowned this year’s winner of the Scripps National Spelling Bee in the United States.

Harini Logan, a 14-year-old from San Antonio, Texas, beat Vikram Raju, a 12-year-old from Denver, Colorado, after she managed to spell 21 words correctly in 90 seconds, compared to 15 from Vikram.

The blistering lightning-round tiebreaker, along with a tricky vocabulary section, was introduced in a bid to challenge the finalists even more, after the 2019 spelling bee saw eight students crowned co-winners because they were so good, the judges ran out of words .

So, reckon you can correctly spell some of the words from this year’s competition? We won’t stop you from setting a 90-second timer for those lightning-round vibes, either.
