FIKOTOVA Olga (1932) Czech Republic and CONOLLY Harold (1931) United States / Track and field
It is not so much the Olympic titles won by the Czech Olga Fikotova and her fellow discuss thrower, the American Connolly, at the Melbourne games in '56 that is worthy of fame.Indeed, the most spectacular moment was when these two lovebirds decided to get engaged and celebrate the event in front of the 100.000 spectators in the Melbourne Cricket Ground at the end of the games.Despite this gesture of unity, much more would be needed to break the iciness of the cold war that was raging between the West and the Eastern Bloc countries at the time.
