Sandton City was home to the fiercest battle as our fact fanatics battled it out for the Brain of 702 title.

We've seen some tough battles take place over the last couple of weeks with the biggest fact fanatics showing off their skill in hope of winning the Dis-Chem Brain of 702 title for 2019. The semi-finals took place at Sandton City Shopping Centre and it was Technical Director Clinton Palmer who claimed victory.

Clinton certainly brought his A-game as he whisked through the last quarterfinal round in Sandton scoring himself R5 000 and then a further R15 000 cash prize when he was crowned the overall Brain of 702 champ as he faced off the other winners from the previous mall activations.

The atmosphere was exhilarating as spectators came out in numbers to show support and witness all the nail-biting action. It was a fun-filled event where players and audiences also got to mingle with their favourite 702 presenters including The Money Show's Bruce Whitfield who was the MC for the day.

Eusebius Mckaiser and Azania Mosaka were the judges for the day making sure no stone was left unturned in the attempt to crown the ultimate 702 fact fanatic.

Clinton, who holds two Masters degrees, in Business and Science, was given 90 seconds to answer a train of 25 questions from Bongani Bingwa who was the quiz-master for the day. He beat governance and compliance practitioner Siviwe Shweni, PhD candidate Sean Leather and Engineer Lehodi Seoka.

However, this is not where the action ends, the Brain of 702 winner Nathan Mallinson will take on Brain of Cape Talk winner in a fast-paced, nail-biting clash that will take place on Monday 25 February live on Breakfast with Bongani Bingwa at 7:10 am. Tune in to hear these two champions do battle and claim the Dis-Chem Brain of Brains title with a cash prize of R20 000 up for grabs.

May the best brain take the claim!
