  • Olympians w/ Streets Named After Them

    (from a listserv):

    ISHPES SportHist Listserv

    I added the given names, but not the Italian streets. I simply cannot find
    them...

    Still I don't know how to make the programm accessible for everyone, so
    that we all can add and share. If someone knows how to organise that...

    Dear Jurryt,

    Just like Jan, I appreciate your interesting project and, moreover, I am
    unable to put addings to your map....
    Here in Florence, there's Piazza Gino Bartali (3-times winner of Giro,
    2-times winner of Tour de France) and I know in Genoa there's Via Filippo
    Emanuele Bottino (Olympic champion of Heavy Weightlifting in Antwerp 1920)
    and I guess many other Italian sportspeople are honoured long cities of
    Italy....

    Yours friendly
    Gherardo Bonini

    Jury--Great project:

    I couldn't figure out how to add it to your map, but America's gold medal
    high jumper Charles Austin is honored in San Marcos, Texas: Charles Austin
    Dr, San Marcos, TX 78666.

    The given streetnames are added on Google Maps. Now you can find out easy
    if there are more streets in this area.

      There's a surreal moment during the "Sebastian Coe: Born to Run" video from the early '80's wherein Coe and a training buddy run past a Loughborgh (sic) street sign in the foreground named "Coe Avenue."

          There's a subdivision in Austin called "Olympic Heights". Every street is named after an Olympian...Bruce Jenner, Jim Thorpe, Mary Lou Retton, etc.
