Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Nigerian boxer, in 1999 was the first person to beat future WBO heavyweight champion Chris Byrd.

Answer: Ike Ibeabuchi

Ibeabuchi floored Byrd twice in the fifth round of their fight before trapping him against the ropes and administering more punishment before the referee stepped in to stop it, and award the win to Ibeabuchi by technical knock out (TKO). This gave Ibeabuchi a record of 20 professional fights and 20 wins, 15 by knockout. Just a year after the fight, Byrd beat Vitali Klitschko to take the WBO heavyweight title, while Ibeabuchi was starting a 16 year prison sentence for attempted sexual assault.
2. Nigerian-Canadian NFL defensive end, played for Chicago Bears from 2003 to 2012.

Answer: Israel Idonije

Idonije was born in Lagos, Nigeria and his family moved to Manitoba, Canada when he was four years old. In 2002, he was named 2002 Manitoba Male Athlete of the Year and the following year was signed as a rookie by the Cleveland Browns of the NFL. Although he never made an appearance for the Browns, he was more successful with the Chicago Bears, playing over 130 games for them before moving to the Detroit Lions in 2013.
3. Georgian born, Greek judoka. Olympic gold medal winner in 2004.

Answer: Ilias Iliadis

Iliadis is a cousin of the Georgian judoka, Zurab Zviadauri, who also won gold at the 2004 Olympics, Iliadis in the half middleweight class and Zviadauri in the middleweight division. In addition to his Olympic gold, Iliadis won World Championship gold in 2010, 2011 and 2014 as well as two European Championships.

Although he failed to win a medal in the 2008 Olympics, he has said that this was his proudest moment as he was selected to be the Greek flag bearer at the opening ceremony.
4. Croatian-Austrian philosopher, wrote "Deschooling Society" in 1971 about the education system.

Answer: Ivan Illich

Illich was born in Vienna in 1926 and his family moved to Italy in 1941 because his mother had Jewish ancestry, leading to him becoming something of a nomad but also becoming fluent in at least ten languages. His book, "Deschooling Society" examined the way the western education system works and was critical of the institutionalisation of pupils within such a system.

He later wrote critiques on subjects such as energy consumption (Energy and Equity (1974)), and medical care (Medical Nemesis (1976)) as well as literacy (In the Vineyard of the Text (1993)). Illich died in December 2002 in Bremen, Germany.
5. Succeeded Nicolae Ceausescu as President of Romania

Answer: Ion Iliescu

Iliescu was one of the foremost figures in the Romanian revolution of 1989 which saw Nicolae Ceausescu overthrown. Iliescu became President of Romania in December 1989 and in May 1990, he became the country's first freely elected head of state, a position he held until 1996, when he was defeated in the elections by Emil Constantinescu.

In December 2000 though, Iliescu's Social Democratic Party was re- elected and he took over the reins of the country once more, overseeing Romania becoming a part of NATO in 2004, his final year in office.
6. English Formula One driver, won the 1961 American Grand Prix.

Answer: Innes Ireland

Although born in the former English county of West Riding of Yorkshire, Ireland was very proud of his Scottish ancestry, and is often cited as the first Scot to win a Formula One race. The 1961 event at Watkins Glen, New York was the first Grand Prix win for Colin Chapman's Team Lotus, who would go on to dominate motor racing and interestingly, the Lotus 21 that Ireland drove, with its Coventry Climax engine was the last 4-cylinder car ever to win a Grand Prix.
7. Governor General of Australia from 1931 to 1936.

Answer: Isaac Isaacs

Isaacs certainly had the background to make a successful Governor General, having previously served as Attorney General of Australia between 1905 and 1906 and Chief Justice of Australia between 1930 and 1931 but what made his appointment as Governor General of Australia controversial was the fact that he was Australian. All previous eight Governor Generals had been British and it took much persuasion before King George V finally allowed such an appointment, the first non British governor general to be appointed in any British Crown dominion.

In 1973, Isaacs was honoured by Australia Post when a stamp bearing his image was issued.
8. Malaysian, crowned as the Sultan of Johor in 2015.

Answer: Ibrahim Ismail

Outside Malaysia, Sultan Ibrahim is probably best known for his love of vehicles such as luxury cars of which he has over 300, and especially motorcycles of which he has numerous models including his distinctive tiger striped Harley Davidson, which he uses each year on a tour through all ten districts of Johor.

The tour usually takes four days and three nights, which he spends in the villages getting to know local people.
9. Australian author of the "Three Worlds Cycle" fantasy series.

Answer: Ian Irvine

The "Three Worlds Cycle" comprises of over a dozen novels, starting with book one of "The View from the Mirror" quartet, "A Shadow on the Glass" (1998). As well as the "Three Worlds Cycle", Irvine has also written the "Runcible Jones" series of books for young adults, about a boy magician, starting with, "The Gate to Nowhere" (2006) and the "Sorcerer's Tower" series for younger readers, starting with "Thorn Castle" (2008).
10. Russian artificial insemination specialist who inseminated chimpanzees with human sperm in the 1920s.

Answer: Ilya Ivanov

Ivanov presented his case for the creation of a "humanzee" in 1910 at the World Congress of Zoologists and by the early 1920s had inseminated three female chimpanzees with human sperm, but he failed to achieve a pregnancy. Undeterred, he continued his research and in 1929 was set to inseminate his five human volunteers with ape sperm, but unfortunately his orangutan died. By 1930, his veterinary institute was facing increased criticism from Soviet scientists and he was arrested and sentenced to five years exile in Alma-Ata, in what is now Kazakhstan, where he died of a stroke in 1932.
