Four Win Gold in Olympics Contest!

Congratulations to the four winners of last week’s 2004 Olympics contest! They are:

  • Irene Chang
  • David Edward Durovy
  • Eva Varga
  • Blake Kaplan

All four have been notified by email. Here is the question they all answered correctly:

The ancient Olympic Games began with a single footrace. What was the name of that footrace?

The name of the footrace was the stade, an Anglicized version of the Greek word stadion. We accepted both words as correct.

If you did not win this time around, don’t worry. We have not one, but two contests planned for this week, so stay tuned for your chance to win!
