    How about: they both lost their WRs to Stefka Kostadinova (Andonova outdoors, Bykova indoors) ?

    That's probably not what you meant, either... How about re-phrasing that question so that it can have only one right answer ?

      I never said it was an easy question :-P But it wasn't quite as tricky as The Riddler suggested it could be, either.

        You are correct that he wore a jersey for the school where he was in grad school.

        Correct !! they set a HS record in the mile realy. Very good answer.

        >fellow called Bazemore - the other 2 ???

        Very good answer on(Tom) Bazemore, he's the one that won the 880 as well. The other 2 still need to be identified.

        MAJOR HINT!!!!!! One of the other 2 is my older brother. But since no one knows my name that does not help much , does it. ??!!

          On the British sprinter question, if the movie "Chariots of Fire" is correct I will guess that one of them is Eric Liddell.

            should not need to be said, but for a full answer, Liddell was a star soccer ( US term ) player.

                Liddell was rugby, I believe.

                  oops, I do believe you are right on the rugby. Do I still get credit for Liddell though ?

                    And I vaguely remember Robbie Brightwell as having been a rugby player before turning to track. Relay medalist maybe? I'm sure he didn't have an individual medal.

                    Please don't let the answer be some cricket player.

                                Wow ! A lot of repeated junkerama here at least 3 times,what a mess, but finally, at the very bottom of the third effort, the Duke 1960 Mile relay question has been answered correctly. Bazemore/Weisiger ( provided previously by other) duo has been correctly filled out with the addition of Tom Menaker and Satch Barnes, although the real first name of that last one is the same as the answerer. I guess he was being modest.

                                Only outstasnding question from me then is Gutknecht's jersey in winning AAU 6 mile in 1961.
