Daily Trivia: 7/27/12

Question: What women’s track star pioneered the one-legged body suit?


Last Question: In 1988, the U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team won which Olympic medal?

Answer: Bronze

1988 was the last year that NBA players were not allowed to participate. As a result, the Soviet Union took home the Gold, Yugoslavia took home the Silver, and the U.S. rounded out the medals by getting the Bronze.
While there were no NBA players on the U.S. team, there were plenty of future NBA players:

Mitch Richmond
Charles Smith IV
Bimbo Coles
Hersey Hawkins
Jeff Grayer
Charles D. Smith
Willie Anderson
Stacey Augmon
Dan Majerle
Danny Manning
J. R. Reid
David Robinson

And as we know, the 1992 Olympics featured the “Dream Team”, starring Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and (once again) David Robinson.
