Greetings,
I am Faz's dad and I was bored at work today so I thought I'd post some WCA stats I collected. As a recent MC of the last cube competition in Melbourne I thought it might be interesting to have some history of these events.

The total number of comps held since the beginning until Sep 12 this year has been 555.


Comps by continent


Europe 212
Nth. America 179
Asia 141
Sth. America 17
Oceania 6

I think the continent on the WCA website called "australia" should be renamed to Oceania as some New Zealanders may be mightily offended :)

I note that the African continent has held no official comps to date. Something to work on. The expansion of this competition in recent years is quite amazing. I hope it continues. We will do our best in the land of OZ.

Cheers

David

Don't worry, both of those things will happen :p

Well, in a few weeks, NZ will have 4, and then we'll have 4 after melbourne cube day. I think next year, it'll be just like this year, except with a comp in between melbourne summer and winter.
