There were a few other groups I wanted to include (Such as Famous Commentators and Question Of Sport Captains), but 20 seemed enough. The quiz is designed to be challenging, but hopefully not impossible. One hint: Athletics covers a wide range of events, so is split into three sub-categories - Sprinters/Distance Runners & Field Events. Thanks for playing, and any comments on how to improve it would be appreciated.

I forgot to mention thanks also to Sproutcm for the original quiz format. :-)

i spent my entire time typing in first names... Also Underwood is a bit confusing, there being a cricket and a rugby underwood

Excellent stuff. Admittedly, it took me a few seconds to realise what I was supposed to be doing, but after that I found it to be a good, tough challenge.

@Averdin: Was actually a bit worried about "Taylor" tbh, but hadn't twigged "Underwood" at all! Good spot though - might change some of the names if I get a few more comments. And yeah, apologies folks if the instructions aren't 100% clear. There are quite a few of these quizzes on Sporcle, but don't think anyone has come up with definitive instructions in

Makes it harder if some go into more than one category though - and it's fine because there is only one correct way of assigning them all into groups - great quiz, I finished with 5 seconds to spare!

excellent quiz. very tricky, but there's room to work things out.

As villafan says, don't change the names. A few red herrings make the quiz better (eg I initially expected Wade to be in tennis)
Feb 16th, 2011 at 11:33 GMT
great quiz. more time please. and rugby union/league - always going to trip me up witht he difference
Feb 18th, 2011 at 01:53 GMT
First quiz i've maxed in ages! excellently done, love the red herrings!
