    OK, I didn't make it clear, but by default, the questions asked here are about T&F.

    Lefteris gets it right again !

    Connely won the Balkan games as well as the East and Central African Championships but never the Central American and Caribbean Games.

    On the other hand, in 1986 in Santiago de los Caballeros of the Dominican Republic, Maurizio Gonzales won the Central American and Caribbean Games title in the 5000m. Mr Gonzales is also Mr Panfil so this is the correct answer to the question since Wanda Panfil of Poland won the 1991 world championship in the Marathon race.

    Cheers all.

    I notice neither of the two questions stated that both spouses necessarily gained fame in the same sport...

    plus, they got married afterwards.

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

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

    Ondieki and Martin is the right answer.

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

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

    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).
