    That's a good one. I just did some poking around to satisfy my curiosity, and if it's the guy I'm thinking of, one of the interesting things about him is that he's the only guy from his country ever to win a medal in the event he won a medal in.

      Gaston Roelants? Although I don't know if his "biggest win" was the world X-C...

        I don't know the answer, but I am pretty sure Roelants is younger.

                      I say no for the same reason as Mimoun; Halberg won an Olympic Gold !

                        Another reason it can't be Halberg is that Quax also won an Olympic 5K medal.

                          satch didn't say it was a solo og medal for the country; someone else opined that.
