2014 Scripps Spelling Bee Tie

They say its only happened four times in the 89 year history of the contest, the last being 52 years ago.  Ladies and Gentlemen we have a "Tie" in this years annual Scripps Spelling Bee championship.  I think its a perfect ending to what I'm told was a 'riveting final-round duel.'

Congratulations go out to 1st place co-champions Ansun Sujoe and Sriram Hathwar.  Its not often that representatives from Texas and New York find themselves sharing anything in common.  Ansun and Sriram are proving that regardless of our differences, a victory shared can bond competitors as much if not more than individual domination.  Isn't there a verse somewhere in the Christian Bible that says "and the children shall lead?"  Well Done children, well done!
