Three cushion billiards has a long history of championship events and a celebrated list of the players who emerged victorious. Modern records for the World Championship usually begin in 1928 with the UMB as the listed governing body and Mr. Edmond Soussa of Egypt as the first winner in the event held in Reims, France. Our listing of UMB World Champions takes us all the way up to the present. Several organizations have laid claim at various times to the sanctioning of the championship. So in some years there may be conflicting records as to who was considered champion. Recently we were contacted by a gentleman from Greenwood, South Carolina who was in possession of what appears to be a 3-cushion billiard world championship medal. The identifying markings are scant and he has now reached out to 3CushionBilliards.com to help identify its authenticity and determine who might have won this coveted piece of history. Can you help identify this medal? If you can please contact us and let us know so we can solve The Mystery of the Medal! More pictures and a bit of the back story follows.
