Summer Olympics Trivia

Do you listen to Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me on NPR? If you are a news junkie like me, and want a good laugh, listen to this show or subscribe to the podcast. The program is consistently very, very funny. The August 9 show has a segment with Olympic trivia. If you missed it, click here and then scroll to the link called "Not My Job"; better yet, listen to the complete show.

Other trivia: In was in 1968 during the Olympics in Mexico City that the I.O.C. began testing to confirm that the athletes who claim to be men were men, and the athletes claiming to be female were actually female. (NYT, August 2008).
