Nationalities of Title Winners

Post by wcheng » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:15 pm

I was just wondering which nationalities (specifically referring to people with citizenships) are represented among this list of title winners. Obviously, the USA is represented, and I know that Canada is represented on the list through Patrick Liao. I'm a citizen of the PRC, so the PRC is also now represented. Does anyone know of any other nationalities?

:shock:

Jason Golfinos is slightly less confident in this prediction.

I remember someone telling me that Matt Bollinger is from Hong Kong, that doesn't necessarily mean he is a citizen of HK though, non-Chinese don't usually have it.
