      Guy Drut? Arnie Robinson? (I may be wrong in both, have to check.)

      EDIT: Drut was right, Robinson wrong.

              Per our database, this has happened 32 times, so a lot of correct answers

                32 times in individual (non-relay) events?

                      The question said the athlete had only two individual medals. Flo-Jo had three.

                        Yeah. Misinterpreted original question.

                            Actually re-checking the database, following the precise details of the original question - individual silver one games, followed by individual gold at the next games and those are the only medals, the # is 26. Of the 32 I originally listed, 6 of them won an individual silver, followed by an individual gold, but it was not in consecutive Games. That's a good trivia ? - name those 6.

                            And if you're only concerning yourself with USA in the original question - 9 of the 26, and 11 of the 32 were Americans.
