  • A link between....

    What's the link between 2 medalists in the 1972 Olympics: one a gold, the other a bronze, in the marathon and the 110 h respectively ?

    Um..........they both were US Indoor Champions while finishing second to foreigners?



    That's a pretty vague connection, and more than likely incorrect.

      Must be a U of Florida connection between Tom Hill and Frank Shorter.

            \You are the closest but still not there... but does involve a certain word or name.

              I now realize that we're being deluged with so many people desperately trying to decypher this enormously interesting question, so I will offer a huge hint to you clamoring masses: it has something to do with the marathon winner's educational background.

                    satch, you are indeed correct. Shorter was a preppie at The Hill School which of course is Tom Hill's name.


                    Stupid question, I know. Sorry.

                          No, the link is that they are both European :-P

                              Sorry, but Shorter attended Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts (now Mount Hermon-Northfield). The Hill School claims two Olympic champions, Sabin Carr ('28 PV) and Bill Porter ('48 110H), but not Shorter.
