Same event? If not, there's Imre Nemeth in the hammer and Miklos Nemeth in the javelin. Both Olympic champions too.

Here's a wild guess. How about Archie San Romani and Archie San Romani, Jr. in the 4 Mile Relay?

Actually I think I saw it in T&FNews a couple of years ago so it wasn't really that wild a guess.

Changing the topic slightly but they just said in the CBC coverage(I love saying that) that the Japanese bronze medallist, Koji, in the hammer throw has held the national championship along with his father since 1971! I wonder if gh knew that. Probably.

I remember hearing that back in 2001 at the Edmonton WCh.

We (Bob Hersh & I) announced it in the stadium at the World Championships in Edmonton.

Likely the source then. Did they ever compete against each other and at what ages? The father must have been getting up there when he stopped competing.
