SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Location, location, location.
That's what three Mexican teenagers focused on in part to win the international Geography Bee in San Diego. They dethroned the United States, a four-time champion. It was the first finals appearance for Mexico.
To win, the trio had to name the historic site carved from sandstone in 1200 B.C. that features two massive temples and statues of an ancient ruler. The teens nailed the answer: Egyptian monument Abu Simbel.
"Jeopardy!" host Alec Trebek moderated the competition. It tested teenagers on geography, demographics and political history.
Teams from 14 other countries were eliminated in the preliminary round. The National Geographic Society holds the contest every other year.
