Jean Pons(http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/p.php?i=2004PONS01) See 2x2 and 3x3 pb in competition..(Breandan style).

And my results:http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/results/p.php?i=2009GARC04

I had improved with megaminx ( 5:30 avg to 2:11 avg) and single ( 3:30 single to 1:47 single)
Mastermagic too: 11,54 avg in my first competition to 3,94 avg in Montpellier.

Once time ago my pb average with Rubik's Clock (Zaragoza Open 2010) and Rubik's 3x3 (Montpellier Open) were the same, 18.21

And "taking" the first thread. I met Esteban in Montpellier and he talks to me and said that he knows how to solve 3x3 but he can't come to the open the day of the 3x3 rounds.

Milan Baticz is currently the only person in the "Best medal collection" table who has more silver medals than gold medals.

Michael Gottlieb and Daniel Varga are currently in the top ten for sum of single ranks as well as sum of average ranks, yet neither of them hold a national record.

And Leyan Lo has the best 3x3 medal collection with more silvers than golds.

It's called Dan Cohen and Milán Baticz ;) (not to mention Bence)

The USA has the most WCA cubers of any country (over 2000), yet there is only 1 WR held by an American. Australia has less than 60 WCA cubers, but we have the most WRs (8) out of any country.
Congrats AUSTRALIA!
I'm wondering how many good cubers could be there.... wait, i've found a WCA statistic which sais there's only 1.

That's not odd, that's just new. Clement added support for other languages (unicode/utf8) so native names can be included now. More here, for example:
http://www.worldcubeassociation.org...l+Results&competitionId=ShenyangBoxingDay2010
Ah, I see. Cool.

So I assume that soon we are going to add names in the scripts of Japanese, Devanagari, Thai, Korean, Urdu, Hebrew, Cyrillic, and so on? Not to be against other cultures, but I think this extra information will clutter the results screen(s). Given that I'm viewing an English-language WCA page, I think it would be better to see only English-language names in the lists and in competition results, with the native script being listed on people's profiles. I would have no problem with putting Chinese characters on the main page for a Chinese-language version of the WCA pages, but to an English speaker (who can't read the characters) it is just noise.

I think they (delegates and Clement) are working on that, yes. An idea to prevent cluttering and spreading is to have short names inside tables and possibly longer names on the person pages. Like we're already doing for competitions, for example Reno/Lake Tahoe Winter 2010 Cube Competition is just called "Reno Winter 2010" inside tables. This could also help with long names like "Muhammad Daniel Hakimi bin Mohammad Firdaus" currently spreading names and results apart.

The Chinese all have short romanized names and even much shorter native names, so they don't cause a problem. Other languages/countries might, and then the short version of the name should be something that's reasonable to put into tables. And we could gray out the native part so it can be ignored more easily by the international audience. Right now it's already un-bolded (and darker).

Yeah, exactly. Having the native name sitting in the main table will be no problem for Chinese (or even Japanese) users, but some kind of change will be needed when more languages start appearing. So I think it'd be better to start using romanization-only now (in the main tables), and then we can avoid it being dependent on the exact ethnicity later.

I do like the idea of short names, but is there a good way to shorten an (already romanized) name in a table, and be sure you're not missing an essential component? Can we be sure "Marcos Henrique de Paula Rosa Nascimento" is "Marcos Nascimento" or do we have to think harder than that?

I wouldn't think at all. I'd ask.

Muhammad has the longest name with 43 characters (including spaces). The longest names with fewer than three words (so might not have shorter versions) are:

Rattharrot Phurilearatthanasok (30 characters)
Chawarach Tanphongphiphatchai (29 characters)

Only 85 persons have names longer than 30 characters, only 24 have names longer than 35. I think 30-35 would be a reasonable upper limit if we do this, and the few people with longer names can easily be asked to provide short versions.
