Gail Trimble the genius


Some people are just born with it. I can't deny that.

She almost single-handedly won the University Challenge.
"There was something other-worldly about Gail Trimble. She did not look like a superwoman, but behind the glasses and the nervous smile lurked a general knowledge machine that was to take University Challenge by storm." (Times Online)

"The team, captained by 26-year-old Gail Trimble, beat Manchester University by 275 points to 190 in the BBC television quiz chaired by Jeremy Paxman. Much of the college's success has been down to Ms Trimble, who scored two-thirds of her team's 1,200 points before the final." (BBC News)
