Apart from being the greatest such event in the history of the sport, it is also associated with one other specific event, which is partly hilarious. Give me the funda. Hints available.
  27. 27. Answer: The wrong name was engraved on the Claret Jug! Due to the three-stroke lead van de Velde had going into the final hole, his name had already been engraved into the Claret Jug. Following his collapse, the engraver had to scratch through van de Velde's name and then engrave Paul Lawrie's name into it.

  34. 34. Q17. X was an aluminium cricket bat and the subject of an incident that occurred at the WACA cricket ground in Perth in December 1979. Australia were playing England in the first Test. When the second day of play began, Lillee emerged onto the field carrying a cricket bat made from aluminium. The bat, manufactured by the company of Lillee's good friend Graeme Monaghan, was intended only as a cheap replacement for traditional cricket bats for schools and developing countries. Nevertheless, Lillee decided to use it in the Test match as a marketing stunt, and at that point, there were no rules against using such a bat. This was not the first time Lillee had used an aluminium bat, as he had employed one 12 days previously in a Test against the West Indies, without incident. This incident led to the introduction of the rule where all the bats are supposed to be made of wood (willow). Give X.
  35. 35. Answer: ComBat
  36. 36. Q18. X was added to the Ethiopian Olympic team only at the last moment, as the plane to Rome was about to leave, as a replacement for Wami Biratu, who was seriously ill. Adidas, the shoe sponsor at the 1960 Summer Olympics, had few shoes left when X went to try out shoes and he ended up with a pair that didn’t fit comfortably, so he couldn't use them. A couple of hours before the race, X decided to run barefoot, the way he'd trained for the race. X was warned about his main rivals, one of whom was Rhadi Ben Abdesselam from Morocco, who was supposed to wear number 26. For unknown reasons, Rhadi did not acquire his black marathon bib before the race, and instead was wearing his regularly assigned track and field bib number 185. During the race X passed numerous runners as he searched for Rhadi's number 26. By about 20 km, X and Rhadi (actually wearing number 185) had created a gap from the rest of the pack. He won in a record time of 2:15:16.2, becoming the first Sub-Saharan African to win an Olympic gold medal. After the race, when asked why he had run barefoot, he replied, “I wanted the whole world to know that my country, Ethiopia, has always won with determination and heroism." He was the first athlete in history to win the Olympic marathon twice. (P.S. I will just tell the answer if no one objects)
  37. 37. Answer: Abebe Bikilia
  38. 38. Q19. As entertaining as it is awesome (in the most literal sense of the word), X is a pre-battle and celebratory dance that's been performed by the island nation’s indigenous people for centuries. It's also probably one of the coolest rituals in today's world of sports. Give X, a traditional Maori dance full of chest slaps, stomping and yelling..
  39. 39. Answer: The Haka Dance
  40. 40. Q20. • This game depends only on luck and consists of series of 2-card tricks. Who has a card or combination of cards with the highest rate wins the trick. • However the card rate in this game is reversed, with a few exceptions. The 2 of clubs is the highest-rated card. • There are 2 combinations that beat any cards: the full X (4 and 9) and the D-X (3 and 6). The D-X is the highest of those two. The 4-card and 9-card are half Xs and they are rated more than other cards, except the 2 of clubs. • This gives us the following cards and combinations rating, from highest to lowest: • 2 of club > 3 and 6 > 4 and 9 > 4 > 9 > 2 (not clubs) > 3 > 5 > 6 > 7 > 8 > 10 > Jack > Queen > King > Ace • The game is played by just taking two cards, and who has highest-rated combination or, if there are no combinations, highest-rated card, wins. • There is also the Sitting Down Bonus and the Saucer Card. • Apparently: "Beginner's luck, very important in X"
