I have just talked Usain Bolt into finishing his tray of chicken nuggets, just for you.

He's there Daisy, section 3 (skill).

Glad folk are liking this, the Top Trump set (Vegan Athletes) is on order in the same format.

OK it isn't, small joke, but I kinda like the idea.

Not a bad idea. What would be your categories?

Strength, Endurance and Skill seem obvious enough, maybe a bit dull.

Years as vegan? Willpower? Evangelism rating?

Facebook updates per day? Uses of the word "pumped" (or "super pumped")?

I used to love Top Trumps (rediscovered them now I have kids). The suggestion wasn't 100% a joke as a set would be great (just not commercial). All cards had one category they were crap on. Maybe:

Years as a vegan
Success. This would be in one range (eg 100-200) for national competitors) and 200+ for international, based on titles. So Scott Jurek would get really high because he wonm international events, some of the national class cyclists who did not compete internationally would get maybe 170.
Epic rating - who takes on crazy long events (see Rich Roll) (sorry Carl Lewis!)
Stereotype destruction rating - Here we're talking skinny looking. So Rob Bigwood, Jim Morris, Mac Danzig etc score high.
Vegantastic - Just a rating for how they promote veganism. So Brazier, Cheeke, Roll, Oakes get good marks, those that we didn't know were vegan get lower marks. And AR vegans get more.

We've got 46 on the list, that's enough for a set!!

Hey, why am I wasting time typing this? It ain't gonna happen!

I'll add this when I get time:http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/44920792.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUUsZ

Ronda Rousey

At just 17, Rousey qualified for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, becoming the youngest judo player in the entire Games.
Also in 2004, Rousey won a gold medal at the 2004 World Junior Judo Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

In April 2006, she became the first U.S. female athlete in nearly 10 years to win an A-Level tournament as she went 5-0 to claim gold at the Birmingham World Cup in Great Britain. Later that year, the 19-year-old won the bronze medal at the Junior World Championships, becoming the first U.S. athlete ever to win two Junior World medals.

In February 2007, Rousey moved up to 70kg where she is currently ranked as one of the top three women in the world. She won the silver medal at the 2007 World Judo Championships in the middleweight division and the bronze medal at the 2007 Pan Am Games.

In August 2008, Rousey competed at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. She lost her quarterfinal to the Dutch ex-world champion Edith Bosch but qualified for a Bronze medal match through the repechage bracket. Rousey defeated Annett Boehm by Yuko to win a bronze medal (note: Judo offers two bronze medals per weight class). With the victory, Rousey became the first American to win an Olympic medal in women's judo since its inception as an Olympic sport in 1992.

Rousey made her mixed martial arts debut as an amateur on August 6, 2010. She defeated Hayden Munoz by submission due to an armbar very early in the first round.

She entered the quarterfinals of the Tuff-N-Uff 145 lbs women's tournament on November 12, 2010 and submitted promotional veteran Autumn Richardson with an armbar in just 57 seconds. Rousey will now move on to the tournament semi-finals against an opponent to be determined.
