WSDC – Summary of Past Results


PLEASE NOTE THIS IS AN UNOFFICIAL COMPILATION

In the past, the draw for the annual WSDC tournament have been based in part on the past sucess of countries. Countries are ranked and then paired against opponents with the intention that all teams face a similarly difficult set of nations.So I have used the same method that calculated WSDC 2011’s pre-tournament rankings to examine the records of countries over the three WSDC 2009-2011.

Previous publications of similar lists have caused some problems, but as I will not be attending WSDC 2012 in Cape Town and will no longer be eligible for WSDC 2013 in Turkey, I believe there is no conflict of interest. I am personally responsible for any errors and apologise in advanced. This list is not official and not 100% accurate, it is intended merely as a guide.

Using the Results for a country that has attended only one or even two WSDC tournaments reduces the accuracy of this summary. Nevertheless, I think the statistics give a good sense of where teams are placed. To make calculations easier, I averaged the results to assume each national team debated at all three WSDCs between 2009 and 2011.

The summary of how National Teams have fared based on WSDC 2009 – 2011 are displayed in the following format – Country, Total wins out of 24, Total judges out of 72
