Dee was the first black person in the QF of the popcon.

Hewitt=Legend is the 3rd Australian in the popcon semifinal (after Bad Gambler and Peta Pan), Viruzzz is the second Argentinian (after ExcaliburII) and Bulldog is not the first Brit, but the first Englishman to achieve it.

Poland is so far the only country with 2 different representants in the final
Well, as a newbie I am still to learn what people look like, not that it would have affected my voting if I did. My first take was that none of the four SFs belong to the world's biggest land mass - the Eurasian continent. Two reside on islands close to it, the others to other continents. Is that a first?
