Summer Hiatus Challenge 2015 - Round 6 Day 5

Post by BoK »

The end is nigh. Later this afternoon, I'll post R6D6. The round and the regular season will end Sunday at Midnight. First thing Monday morning, we will post the TOC invitation thread, including qualifiers and alternates. Then we plan to start the actual TOC on Wednesday to give some time for RSVPs and to sort out the field.

On to R6D5. Today is DadOfTwins Appreciation Day here at SHC World Headquarters.

Good luck to all.

4: At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Yohan Blake won the silver medal in the 100m dash; the gold medalist was from this same country.

8: In the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup Finals, the U.S. lost to this country; in the 2015 finals, the U.S. beat the same country.

10: In the decathlon at the 1912 Summer Olympics, Hugo Wieslander finished second to this American, whose medal was revoked based on a violation of amateurism.
