And the final results are in!!
Our apologies for the long wait - our countries features are not quite worked out yet, so Pietro worked for a day or two to semi manually determine all these numbers, and then I worked to make the leaderboards! 😄
We had a total of 398 catchers join us this year!! That's more than double compared to Catchathon 2017 💜 And here's the Top 20 catchers, by research movies analyzed!
42 teams competed this year, compared to 23 teams in 2017! Here's the Top 20 teams by research movies:
And here's how countries did!

And finally, here's more fun info on the countries that participated!
Way to go Israel with 998 movies per (the one and only!) catcher! Right behind are two other "I's" - Ireland & Iran.
Thank you all again for such an exhilarating and inspiring catchathon this year - for standing together as a planet, breaking Stall Catchers, records and fighting Alzheimer's together! 💜
