All Sports - Xmas Day Eurosport quiz answers

It's time to get the answers for Eurosport's great sporting quiz of 2012.


Remember you have given answers to questions which previously have been asked to 100 British sports fans.

100 people were each given 100 seconds to give as many answers as they could to the questions below.

The number of points you earn is decided by how many of the 100 people have previously given the same answer.

Correct answers that score no points are known as "Pointless" answers for which you were aiming.

If 1-9 people gave the same answer as you then you score 1 point, if 10-19 people give the same answer as you then you earn 2 points and so on with 90-99 people meaning 10 points.

An incorrect answer is awarded 20 points.
