Season 121 - WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION !!!
After two seasons of very easy questions, we hit a difficulty of exactly 50 this time. A big hand should go out to Sisira Mark Anthony for hitting the target precisely and for making a set of fun and challenging questions. And the season was more difficult. No quizzer had a perfect season, in fact the highest score was twelve points. A total 7 Qweeps reached that score and that meant that the tie-break would be packed.
The topic this time gold medal winners at the 100 meters event for men at the summer Olympics – and Mads, naming swimmers who won gold medals at that distance will not give you any points. In fact, if I were you I would be sure to double check my spelling of all my answers from now on...
David, Dorian, Duncan, Hasini, Ronny, Sander and Vinayak were the seven top contenders and they all participated. Everyone did very well to be honest, but one contestant outshined all the rest. To be fair it should be said that sports is his favorite topic. But who is a sports nerd? Okay, I will not keep the winner from you any longer. Please join me in giving Sander van der Heyden a big round of applause! This is Sanders second championship – congratulations.
