  1. Brazilian Martine Grael won gold medal at Sailing 49er FX. Her father is the 2-time Olympic champion Torben Grael. How many times has a father/child won the same event?? 🙂

    1. Thanx for your note and letting us know about this. We have those stats but at the moment too much to do to get that one figured out. Maybe after the Olympics we can do that. Its not that unusual. – Bill M
