Ronnie O'Sullivan was born on December 5, 1975 in Wordsley, West Midlands. He grew up in Essex though, and after taking a shine to snooker registered his first-century break (117) at the age of just ten.
After making his first maximum 147 break at the 1991 British Amateur Championships, and winning the IBSF World Under-21 Championship in the same year, O’Sullivan turned pro at the age of 16.
One of the most successful snooker players in history. Ronnie is a six-time world champion, a seven-time Masters champion, and a seven-time UK champion.
