Birthday Trivia Question

Postby gh » Wed Nov 12, 2003 4:35 pm

What husband/wife team of World Record setters shared not only the same birthday, but also the same birth year?

It gets even better; they won Olympic golds a couple of hours apart.

Neither of Hal Connolly's wives ever set a WR. Olga Fikatova was an Olympic Champion, and Pat Connolly was an Olympian, but neither set a WR.

The Zatopeks look like the most likely candidates.

I re- institute my Toomey/Rand answer, she DID set a WR.

now that I have submitted my answer, I have checked, and Toomey/Rand is wrong, she won 4 years earlier in Tokyo.
