Backup Quiz Round 1

This is a round I put together as a backup for someone else’s quiz a little while ago, this first round was a sports based round. Normally I don’t do too many sports rounds as I don’t have a huge amount of knowledge in that field, but when I do put a round in I use it as an opportunity to learn something new. With any luck some of you might learn something new from this one.
