I'm sure several countries have a National Checkers Contest or Competition, so |
I would need to know that before I can answer the question correctly. However,
here is the information for the US.
Youngest and oldest national champion Asa A. Long (b. 20 Aug 1904) became
the youngest US national champion, aged 18 yr 64 days, when he won in Boston,
Massachusetts, USA on 23 Oct 1922. He became the oldest, aged 79 yr 334 days
when he won his sixth title in Tupelo, Mississippi, USA on 21 Jul 1984. He was
also world champion 1934-8.
