    Re: Who am I (hat-trick)?

    >Ponomaryeva won discus gold in 1952 and 1960, and bronze in 1956 (this is from memory, I wonder if maybe it was silver in 1956?)<

    It was bronze.

            Thanks Noone for the early photo of Dumbadze.
            She was really something. She also set a huge WR right after my birthday in '52. I did not know about her until the Euro Champs in '50 but she had a very long career. However, the best looking athlete I saw in my teens was Swedish HJer Gunhild Larking (4th in Melbourne ahead of Balas)

              Mine would be Olga Fikotov√°.

                    Eat your heart out, Satch and Pego. If you had got Nina Ponomaryeva, I would have given you Earlene or Olga as prize. You'll have to wait for my next trivia contest which is scheduled sometime in November 2012.

                      Since Noone won't give us Olga, I'll have to. Here it is.

                        It is interesting in the photo of Dumbadze, she is wearing the singlet of Ukranian SSR. Was that her residence?

                          I looked it up. The Russian site states that she lived in Novosibirsk. I can't figure it out from the picture. The first letter could be a Y(U) or an X(KH).
