RECORD BOOK
consecutive weekly wins
    This record has stood since since 2001 as five straight, set by TemplarLLM in the NBA comp. It has
    been equalled 10 times since. After 13 years and 300 or so tipping comps, N-Bomb shattered this
    record with seven consecutive weekly wins in the Super League comp. This record will stand for
    another 13 years, but I doubt it .. it'll become a 99.94 unbreakable Bradmanesque effort, which will
    be there forever.
For those of you who are interested, the first FT tipping comp was the NRL in March 2000, followed by the FAPL in August 2000. The third comp was the NFL a month later.

Final medals ceremony for the year:

    Melbourne CupHowie72illiniman14paper_aeroN-Bomb
    F1 Grand PrixAlonsoKingHowie72N-BombAlonsoKing
    World Tennis N-Bombsrini701Howie72[first comp]
    Nascar George95srini701gtho4srini701
    NFLdg_daveGeorge95gtho4srini701

RECORD BOOK
    perfect picks
    15/16 : BxBaracuda : NFL week 17 (near miss).

    spoonless streaks
    94 : AFL : ozfei : joined NFL comp in 2009 and first spoon came more than 5 years later in week 9 of 2014 comp! This is
    a new all-time record for any FT tipping comp .. ozfei smashed the previous record of 72 weeks set in the FAPL comp by
    DanielPoulson from 2009 to 2012.

    Golden Wood
    0/12 : FLC : Sypher in week 19 of FLC comp, 29-Nov-14

    consec weekly wins
    5 : AlonsoKing : weeks 14 to 18 of F1GP comp.

The FunTrivia HoF has been updated for the above medals and records.

Special mentions: 22crows failed in her attempt to be the first-ever winner of the FT Triple Crown, having already won the first two legs (Grand National and Kentucky Derby). She's the 3rd person to win two legs. AlonsoKing now has two medals, both gold, in the same comp, and they're back-to-back. He's two for two!

After 14 years, we bid farewell to the Nascar tipping comp. This year's comp was the final edition (first run in 2001), due to the dwindling number of participants. Last year's comp attracted nine runners and this year's had eight. The most successful participants were srini701 and George95 .. srini701 went gold-gold-silver for the final three years of the comp, and George95 went silver-silver-bronze-gold for the final four years. Many thanks to BxBarracuda for running this!

*** Only ONE new medallist in 2014, but guess what? 22crows also becomes the 100th person to win a medal in any competition in FT history!

*** The traditional "big guns" of FT medals -- gtho4, Sypher, srini701 -- all take a massive beating in 2014 frown

*** 20 people finished on the podium in 2014 (it was 21 in 2013, and 23 each in 2012 and 2011).
