2. John Laycock
3. Sir William Goode
4. Kg Melaka Mosque
5.?

For 5 as I said can be 2 answers because the guy who won the title back then got no world championships, this was considered the world champion. But we had an official WC in 1990 also.

number 5 is who, the darts uncle ah
At the time darts was NOT considered a sport so not counted. This guy in 1990 - this was considered a sport and he was declared by the sports press as our first official World champion

But we had 1 in the 1950s too, but this championship was considered the world championship by everyone in the sport at the time

Sri Mariamman started on in 1827 - Tan Howe Liang did not win an Olympic Gold or a world championship.

For 5, I believe this event was included in certain SEA Games. But there was a world championship in 1990 in Holland and a local Malay guy won.

In the 1950s.....this champion shares a common theme with our latest
