ECO Thursday Quiz on Twitter – No 6


Horsewoman Lucinda Green, composer Josef Suk, runner Steve Cram and the USA baseball team have what in common?


@themusicalbrain:  All won silver medals at Olympics held in LA (1932 or 1984). Although technically no medal for US team, but they placed 2nd.

ECOrchestra Response

We were absolutely delighted that our good friend @themusicalbrain came back with a lightning fast and completely correct response to our #ECOThursdayQuiz on Twitter.

Indeed, they have all won a silver medal at an Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

At the 1984 Los Angeles games Lucinda Green won the equestrian team eventing silver medal, Steve Cram won the 1500 meters athletics silver medal in the main event and the USA baseball team won the baseball silver medal in the demonstration event.  Josef Suk won his silver medal at the 1932 Los Angeles games, where there was an Art competition alongside the main event, for the symphonic march ‘Into a New Life.’
