    I really like the whole quiz idea.

    So a question. If you get it right its your question.

    Here is mine.

    He was triumphant in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and the broad jump. He was also a key member of the 400-meter relay team that won the Gold Medal. In all but one of these events he set Olympic records. He was the first Blank in the history of Olympic Track and Field to win four gold medals in a single Olympics. The year was 1936. Who was the man?

    Staying with the Olympic theme, since London just won the 2012 Games :
    Which American athlete won both the Decathlon and the Pentathlon at the same Games, only to have the medals taken away when it was discovered he had played minor league baseball for one season?
    The medals were reinstated in 1983, 30 years after his death.

    Cool, right, now my question:

    Some beleive it was one of the worlds finest aircraft, it was able to achieve mach 2 with a full load. Made in the late 1950s the supersonic interceptor called _____ was way ahead of any other aircraft at that time. Mid way into the develpment project the ____ was cancelled due to extremely high costs and some political issues. After the cancellation of the project, most of the documents and evidence concerning the ____ was destroyed, and thus the ____ is still a bit of a mystery today.

    What is the name of this plane?

    She was born in the Kremlin, her father religious leader and her mother the daughter of a founder of another religious group. She was very romantic and wrote children's books and poems. Even though her religion condemned lying as a grave sin, she joined a nation's intelligence service to work in the field in a country occupied by the enemy. Even though her situation there became more and more dangerous, sghe refused offeres of being pulled out and brought to safety. She was finally captured by the enemy, after a fight, and executed in a prison camp.

    Who was she?

    Wrong, Mata Hari was a Dutch dancer, working in France and Belgium and not born in the Kremlin. A hint: the person I'm refering to was active in WW2. She was also a royal princess.
