The list is quite long because we are so great

Are you looking for teams, individuals, any specific sports?

Damn you. It just took me 10 mins to clean the spray of coffee off my screen.

Do you mean boardgames, card games, indoor games (i.e. darts) or sports in general?

Off the top of my head:
Neil Robertson just won the World Snooker Championship, previously held by Horace Lindrum.
Walter Lindrum was World Champion of Billiards (and arguably the greatest player of all time).
Cecil Purdy won the World Correspondence Chess Championship in 1953.

I'm sure there are others.

I took out the Moon-beam fondling World Championship in a blockbuster head to head against myself the other night in a fit of abject laziness. Does that count?

Cheers,

Giles.

Damnit! I hoped I'd get more than a homemade trophy and a certificate manufactured in MSWord!

Perhaps next time!

Cheers,

Giles.

As a serious PS

Which World championships we talking about?

We have a self proclaimed one in Pennsylvania, which unlike the World series at least foreigners can turn up to. It's still not a true World Championship.
