Ok here is something that may be of interest. How many WoC teams have got people in it from the same JWOC cause I think Aislinn, Belinda, myself and Krystal are doing a good job of repeating jwoc 2009.

Brodie Matt, pat and Henry were all in the same jwoc as well I think

The other one is the comparison between partners who have both run WOC. Number of times qualifying %, highest place

1996 had Jo, Allison, Cassie, Susanne, Rob, Troy and Reuben.

Is 1976 the year of birth which has brought forth the most Australian WOC team members?

Damn, I'm one year off that but no-one cares about WMTBOC anyway :P

Doing something similar for MTBO is on my to-do list.

As for couples - given our sport's reputation for incestuousness, there are surprisingly few instances of couples running in the same WOC team for Australia (and no married ones as far as I can tell - Warren's last WOC was a few months before their wedding), with some notable couples having WOC careers which only overlapped slightly (Warren and Tash again) or not at all (Geoff and Jenny, Grant and Shannon).

Jo and Shep have the most WOCs for a partnership, both in total (17) and in common (7).

Also surprisingly few siblings in the same WOC team. Apart from various instances involving the Key/Neve extended family (Warren, Steve and Sue twice, Steve and Sue once, Jasmine and Mace once), the only other one is Krystal and Laurina in 2015. (Leon's one WOC was one Bryan missed).
