Dr. Yip Swe Chooi, also of Malaysia, Grandmaster of Memory, recited the first 60,000 digits of Pi with just 44 errors on 25 July 1998. It took him 14 hours.

Unfortunately both error lists are lost, so the exact positions of the first errors made are unknown.

**Therefore, both performances are no world records according to the Pi World Ranking List or the
'Guinness Book of Records'.**
