Lightbulb Ranking by 2008 titles and medals!

I've made this research as it's one of the elements deciding the Champions League division rosters, but I think it's worth posting it separately as it's a nice review of last year's achievements.

I've considered titles in regular tour events (singles and doubles) and podiums in yearly events (Fed Cup, Worlds, Olympics, Doppio Giallo and Champions League). Some ties have been broken considering a 1st place is better than a 2nd or 3rd and individual achievements are better than team effort ones.

And here's the list!

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
I know I don't fit in that much

Re: Ranking by 2008 titles and medals!

I must say there are a few posters without any title or medal ranked lower than Kart, who didn't compete in all the events last season.

I almost feel bad for the poor chap. Let's see how he does this year. He is playing all the events now.

Re: Ranking by 2008 titles and medals!

Considering he is mostly bragging about his abilities, his place in this ranking is justified.

Kuilli, well done.

Thanks James.

I'm sure he is quite motivated this year. As long as the results are not reversed at the end of the year... I just hope Kart is not planning on using the same thing Russian biathlon athletes are on.
