              A bit surprisingly, Irena Szewinska is not among them (gold in 4x100 and individual 400).

                I think McKenley would have been an excellent guess, but this really surprised me - only male is John Regis (GBR) - 1988 4x100 silver, and 1992 4x400 bronze

                  A few woman - eg Betty Cuthbert - missed their chances due to the women's 4x4 only being introduced in the 70s. The Aussie woman would probably have been favourites for gold if a W4x4 was on the cards in Tokyo 64. Now that would be some kind of record - gold in 100m/200m/400m/4x1/4x4

                    Had she not gotten injured in Moscow during the individual race, Poland would have almost certainly taken the 4x4 bronze in 1980. As it were, they were only 0.5 away from the podium. Even being well past her prime, she would have easily cut 2 seconds off the team's time. In 1976, Poland didn't even enter a team, which isn't that suprising, given that the second fastest Polish woman that year was at 53.36.
