  • Trivia question (but I’m not sure I have the right answer)

    Who was the last straddler (as opposed to flopper) to win Olympic gold? Two answers required, for men and women.

    Tarmak in 1972 beating Stones and Ackermann in 1976 for women

        we've been down this road before; putting a fine point on it, Tarmak is not the last.

              Isn't that like asking what Olympic champion won with the slowest 400m over the last 30 years or something like that?

              Come on man!

                Or even this....the last gold medalist who didn't break 4:00 in the 1500.

                  If you had said 3:50, it would not be very long ago at all...

                      Yes Ackermann (who I think of as Witschas) and Schenk were the answers I was looking for. Tuariki and LNO, bravo !

                        Did the next responses miss your point? I took it as a similar question could be constructed for the last gold medalist to win with a 1500 over 5:00 and giving Bryan Clay as the answer (or something like that for each of the individual events).

                          It's a trick question. It was a trick question the last time it showed up here. And the time before that. It'll always be a trick question.

                            and the OP intended it as a trick question

                              So Tarmak was the last straddler to win the Olympic HJ for men. But who was the first straddler to win?
