Remiss of late here so:

 

Eduardo Guerrero, Argentine gold winner in rowing (double sculls) at the 1952 Olympics, 87. https://translate.go...-1952&edit-text=

 

Manuel Mendivil, Mexican bronze winner at the 1980 Olympics in Team Eventing, 79. https://translate.go...cZqbAN34hk6BxoQ

 

Karen Stives, US gold winner in Team Eventing and silver winner in Individual Eventing at the 1984 Olympics, 64. http://www.nj.com/ho...strina_kar.html

 

WTF you search foreign language terms or something?  There have to be a good dozen of us (and I am unanimous in that) that search 3-4 times a day, and we all came up empty?  Are you using something besides search engines, say Lexis or something?  The whole 'translate' thing is obtuse.  Are you honestly searching alternative language terms for death etc?  That's crazy.

More news from the battlefield of the ArmageddRon, it's Ron Clarke, Australian athlete, who won bronze at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics in the 10,000m. He was 78. http://www.dailymail...ke-dead-78.html

You beat me to it!  Here is an Aussie report:  http://www.abc.net.a...ke-dies/6552010

 

I like your report better, I put the UK one because it literally came up as I hit the page, and there might have been a DDP hit (he isn't).

 

Cheers. This is a huge death for Australia as he was very popular back in his day.  We are having quite an epic death year down under so far with Malcolm Fraser, Joan Kirner, Betty Churcher, Alan Bond, Ritchie Benaud, Stuart Wagstaff and Alan Seymour all gone before we are even half way through the year!  :o

 

Time for you Poms to start  pulling your weight by having some major  deaths of your own.

 

 

Like Christopher Lee, Terry Pratchett, Ron Moody, Leon Brittan & Charles Kennedy

 

That's half as many deaths and there are 53 million peopl ein England as opposed to only 23 million in Australia...  :D

 

Seriously, how many of the Aussies listed above are household names in the UK? They are all extremely famous in Australia (far above B-level celeb status.)

 

 

Household - One (RB)

 

 

I could add Lance Percevill, Ruth Rendall, Errol Brown, Keith Harris & Shaw Taylor

Had Clarke on my long list for a while (dicky ticker since the '68 Olympics) without really knowing what his condition was enough to have him in my team...
