So cool: Ananya Vinay, a 12-year-old from Fresno, Calif., has been crowned this year’s Scripps National Spelling Bee champion.
And she handled it like a total boss.
Ananya Vinay never looked all that impressed by any of the words she was given in the finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
It was the first time since 2013 that the bee declared a sole champion. After three straight years of ties, the bee added a tiebreaker test this year, and it looked like it might come into play as Ananya and Rohan dueled for nearly 20 rounds.
