  • Mr and Mrs X

    The category is 'famous married couples':
    One of them is the reigning world champion. The other one has never won a global title, but has a total of 5 medals from Olympics and world champs.

    I doubt it's either of these couples, but it's worth a shot:

    Kelli White & Boris Henry?
    Allen Johnson & Torri Edwards?

    (though I don't think Allen & Torri are actually married....)

      I don't think either of these couples has married... if they had, Johnson and Edwards could be the right answer (Edwards has actually won 5 medals in OG and WCh, including relays). Boris Henry has only won 2 medals at the global level, though.

        When you say "one of them is current world champion", does that include World Indoors and World XC....?

          Yes, potentially...

            Is it Mirela Manjani? Her husband has placed well at the Olympics and World Championships in weightlifting.

              Nope. The couple I have in mind are both T&F athletes.

                The answer isn't that obvious... but still I'm slightly disappointed nobody has got it yet...

                Small clues (I don't want to make it too easy, either):
                - I did mean a reigning OUTDOOR world champ from Paris
                - the couple don't use the same last name

                    Nope. Robinson never won any global medals, plus once again, I believe they're not married.

                      Ah, really thought I had it then. There were some rumours that they were married, but they have only ever been engaged - Rohan split with her, just a couple days after her WCh win!

                        Still no correct answer ??? How much easier do I have to make it for y'all ? ;-)

                        - it's the wife who is the current world champion
                        - the husband also competed in the Paris WCh, but did not medal
                        - both represent the same country, but do not specialize in the same event

                          On behalf of Mump Boy and Flumplestiltskin, of IAAF forum fame (who have forgotten their password for this forum!) they say the answer is Irina Yatchenko and Igor Astapkovitch.

                            BTW, great question, Pav!!

                            If Mump and Flump were regulars on here, they'd be great at the trivias!!

                              Indeed, Yatchenko and Astapkovich is the right answer. Well done !
