The two top collegiate debaters of Great Britian wrap up a week in Missouri tonight at Truman State University in Kirksville. Sion Owen of Oxford University and Kenny Fleming of Glasgow University have debated in St. Louis and at Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg. Those were the first legs of their 26-college tour of America. Owen says he has been noticing a difference in how the British and the Americans approach debate. He says Americans put forward more evidence, while the Brits use a lot of passion. Owen is from Wales; Fleming from Scotland. They say they hope to learn more about America during their tour, and hope to bust a few stereotypes about the British.
