    Olli replied to a thread One And Done in Historical
    Hmm, there seem to be rather few clues (and hard to understand what the wolves have to do with this). However, often I make guesses in any case, so...

    Olli replied to a thread Selma and Liisa in Historical
    Yes it does. When I saw "Liisa", that immediately suggested Finland, where it is a common female name. I guess Selma and Liisa were Ritola's wives.

    Olli replied to a thread Spy Hill in Historical
    Born 1940, competed in 1964, 1968, 1972, not born in Asia, North America, or Europe. So probably an African. Kipchoge Keino won four medals and Kenya...

    That part I did not understand, but if he is John George I think I got it.

    It seems I am again the first to reply. Often I take a look at the message board when it is around 6 p.m. here where I am living, and often I find a...

    OK. Funny thing is that Bill Toomey was actually the only B. T. that came to my mind, but I thought he did not fit the clues; I again underestimated...

    According to the clues "Both people competed in the same event when winning those two Olympic gold medals." Seems a bit misleading, if it was Toomey....

    Haha, I'll try again to figure out what follows from the clues. The older was born 1939, the younger 1960. Olympics on the same continent might most...

    Olli replied to a thread World Record in Historical
    I couldn't figure this out even by doing research, but perhaps thedoorknobbroke referred to a possibility I overlooked. If (s)he was born 1961, (s)he...

    Oh Jenkins. That would have been one of the few American winners in Melobourne whose name I do remember (because it associates with David Jenkins),...

    At least in Finland athletics used to be the No. 1 sport, and it is still among the most popular televised spectator sports, even though the level of...

    Haha, Kiselev/Kiselyov would have been my second guess, but I thought a cyclist might have more likely changed to running than to shot putting...

    Olli replied to a thread Not The Favorite in Historical
    Born 1957; hence won perhaps in 1980 or 1984. Perhaps some of the Russians in Moscow. There were several, but if he/she was originally cyclist, then...

    Olli replied to a thread Roman in Historical
    Hmm, born in 56; hence perhaps participated in 1976 and 1980 or 1980 and 1984. However, not too many athletes medalled in both 1980 and 1984 because...
