May 17th's Question:
The Olympic Games being held in Atlanta this summer mark the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympics. The most gold medals won by a single Canadian athlete in the the Summer Olympics is two.
Name the Canadian Olympians who have won two gold medals in the Summer Olympics.
Again there is a slight chance of a misunderstanding due to wording. The word in question is single. It could be interpreted that "single" refers to athletes who won gold medals as individuals rather than being part of teams. On the other hand "single" could be interpreted to mean individual athletes as winners rather than simply the team they were on. I am willing to take either interpretation. Here are the answers. The first interpretation would include only the first three. The second interpretation would include all 10 athletes.
