Ronnie O’Sullivan

British professional snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan is the current World No 12, three-times World Champion and the winner of 22 ranking events.

Ronnie is currently competing on the world’s premier snooker tour, the 2011-2012 Main Tour.

O’Sullivan started his career at an early age. He first achieved a century at the age of 10, scored a 147 maximum break when at just 15, and turned professional at 16. He recorded the youngest ever victory in a ranking tournament when he won the 1993 UK Championship aged 17.

He holds the record for the fastest recorded maximum break, made whilst playing Mick Price in the World Snooker Championship on 21 April 1997; he completed the clearance in 5 minutes and 20 seconds – an average of one shot every 9 seconds. In fact, his six maximum breaks include the five fastest on record.
