Were You Born In An Olympic Year?

Tue Sep 26, 2000 2:24 pm

I was..but if I tell you, I'd be giving away more than I like...SO given my age group and with a keen knowledge of geography, can you figure out my age and the year and the city where the Olympics were held the year I was born? Here are the clues:

I was born in June
The Olympics that year were held in a North American city.

If you figure it out, keep it to your self!!!! 

(for this discussion by Olympic years I only refer to the years of the Games of the Olympiads [an Olympiad is the four years between the "summer" games, not the Winter Games] Of course I doubt there are any 2-6 year olds posting here :-P)

I was born in January 1984, when the games were in LAX - but I didn't know nuttin' about no olympic games - all I knew about was that it was very possible to cuddle up to my mama!

Thai747: that is not a complete answer, besides, it was the age guess you were supposed to keep to yourself!

Give me your complete answer.

You were born in 1968, the year of the Mexico City Olympics. So, this makes you 32 years old.

I believe Louis is correct since Surf's profile says he is a 26-35 year old.

32. You're an old-timer Surf .

Louis wins!!!! 32yrs old, 1968, Mexico City games

I figured that would throw people off, as people forget that Mexico is part of North America.

Thank you for playing, and good night!

Nope, I was born in 1982, I was born between the 1980 Moscow and Lake Placid games, and the 1984 Los Angeles and Sarajevo games.

I was 14 during the LA games (who can forget Mary Lou? What an annoying twit). I also remember the '84 Sarajevo games when Mark Hamilton (was that his name?) won gold in ice skating and Torvill and Dean earned perfect 10's for their Bolero ice dance routine. How sad what has happened to that city since.

I was a freshman in college during the Seoul Games. We watched the games in our dorm lounge. We then went out and got drunk, I'm sure   .

I think of all the games I've witnessed, the Barcelona games have been the most outstanding.

I was 15 during the LA games. I followed the torch guy up Beverly Blvd up to Rossmore and rt. on to Vine into Hollywood on my brand new Mongoose BMX bike w/ oakley grips and skyway tuffwheels. I tried to snuff out the torch but was held back by two men in leather chaps. I tried to fight back but it was useless. They ripped off my Blue Oyster Cult concert jersey but I was to quick to be caught. After that I went to Zody's on Sunset.

I was born during the olympic games held in a city that starts with an "M". I know that if you are an olympic fan, you'll find that four consecutive games were held in a city that starts with an "M". So using my profile, can you find out the city where the olympic games were held when I was born?

SURF: You are correct, Mexico is part of North America, although many people think it is not.

I was born in 1980. I'm assuming there was an Olympics that year?

Surf.

You are correct.

Stratifier: Of course, 1980 Olympic games were held in Moscow, USSR. You should probably know that the United States didn't participate.
