Dana Zátopková (19 September 1922 – 13 March 2020)
As the fine incorruptible gentlemen of the International Olympic Comitee would not allow to embed this video, here the link:
And here's a fine article about Emil Zatopek and Dana Zatopkova: how a husband-and-wife team won four Olympic gold medals at the 1952 Games.
The video won't play here, but i read the article. Astounding.ReplyDelete
It's only to watch on youtube, Mimi.Delete
They were a remarkable couple – throughout their lives.
Dos magnífics atletes.😉ReplyDelete

Thanks for that link! I watched that video, and it was absolutely amazing!ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed, Lon. They were a remarkable couple, in every respect.Delete
Great post of a couple of amazing athletes. I enjoyed the video.ReplyDelete
Lovely human beings, indeed, Bill. There is another video with Emil becoming second: I wonder whether today's athletes would even compete under such conditions.Delete
