Nationalities of Title Winners

Postby wcheng » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:15 pm

I was just wondering which nationalities (specifically referring to people with citizenships) are represented among this list of title winners. Obviously, the USA is represented, and I know that Canada is represented on the list through Patrick Liao. I'm a citizen of the PRC, so the PRC is also now represented. Does anyone know of any other nationalities?

Will Nediger is the only person to have won ICT, ACF Nationals, and Reach for the Top Nationals. Has anyone come close to winning all three of ICT, ACF Nationals, and University Challenge?

:shock:

Jason Golfinos is slightly less confident in this prediction.

I remember someone telling me that Matt Bollinger is from Hong Kong, that doesn't necessarily mean he is a citizen of HK though, non-Chinese don't usually have it.
