2011 Spelling Bee: Presenting The Most Difficult Names To Spell In Washington D.C. Sports

The 2011 Scripps National Spelling Bee is taking place right now, and you can follow all the action by turning on ESPN or (my preferred method) following the tweets of the AP's Joseph White. As a writer, the Spelling Bee always gets me because it reminds me of how some athletes have such annoying names to spell.

Maybe this is a unique problem to me, I don't know. Nevertheless, for anyone who has to type out names like Gorzelanny, Atogwe and several others, it can be frustrating. Therefore, we at SB Nation D.C. have decided to unveil our very own Sporcle D.C. Sports Spelling Bee Quiz! We've gathered up 30 of the most difficult D.C. sports figures to spell, both current and former, and have put them into this quiz for you.

You have 10 minutes to figure out all 30 of them, and please, no peeking. I'll give one away: Fred Davis is not on the list.
