No valid answer as yet. Are you all still stumped?
You're telling me that the Olympic business plus Eddy Merckx is not valid? Man, you're tough.
OK, I give up on the velodrome. Moving to the foreground, is Louis de Broglie involved?
You are clearly still stumped.
for the record, de Broglie was a really unique guy and is buried in that picture.
Do I really have to go back to that velodrome? And do we have to drag cricket into this?
Cricket was an Olympic sport exactly one time, at the Paris non-Olympics of 1900. The British played the French and, of course, the French did not win. They got slaughtered. The Brits did not win gold medals because there weren't any. They got models of the Eiffel Tower.
