2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee

Ooops! I almost forgot the 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee, held in the United States on June 5th.
This year's winner was Anamika Veeramani, from Ohio, who spelled the word 'stromuhr' correctly to win the competition. According to npr, a 'stromuhr' is a medical instrument 'that measures the amount and speed and flow of blood through an artery', which is just as well since Anamika wants to go to Harvard and train to become a cardiovascular surgeon!
