  • Another Mr. and Mrs. X

    He was a world champion, she was an Olympic medallist (both in individual events). However, each competed for a different country. They were from 2 different continents, too.

    Don't tell me nobody knows the answer... I thought that was a fairly easy one.

      And, while I'm at it, here's another intercontinental married couple:

      He was the Central American and Caribbean Games champion. She was the world champion, again competing for a country located in another continent. Who are they ?

        I think I'm out of my depth here, but I seem to remember Hieke Drecshler (sp?) being married to an American (?) elite. Maybe I'm crazy.

          Wrong answer. Drechsler's husband was an East German soccer goalkeeper. She divorced and didn't get married again (I remember Alain Blondel was her boyfriend, though).

            I think you mean Susen Tiedtke-Joe Greene marriage, also gone with the wind.

                  Re: Another Mr. and Mrs. X

                  Ondieki and Martin is the right answer.

                  Still waiting for guesses as to who the second couple is.

                    I see nobody has got this one yet... Here's a clue: she was an Eastern European.

                        Connolly and Fikotov√° competed long before the WC's. The question specifies a world champ.

                          plus, they got married afterwards.

                            And Connolly never got better than silver in the Central American & Caribbean Champs :-)
