Olympic Cities Distance Quiz (1 of 6)-Paris to Sydney
Sydney, Australia, hosted the games just one time_in 2000, though Melbourne hosted the Olympics (equestrian events were held quite far away in Stockholm, Sweden, that year) in 1956.
For those games, the American Olympic team consisted of 586 athletes, including Nick Hysong, now age 40, who won gold in men's pole vault, a track and field event. Hysong was actually born just one year after Kriz died (the men's gymnast died in 1970; Hysong was born in Dec. of 1971).
Now, we are going to ask those of you checking from Dubai to Denver how far a part these two cities are. Is the answer?:
A) 10,510 miles
B) 10, 530 miles
C) 10,550 miles
D) 10, 570 miles
One can fly a number of airlines to get to this route including (we presume): Malaysian Airlines, Quantas Airlines and Air France.
SIDEBAR: The answer to our quiz on "The Jetsons" is A) 1962. The show was set in 2062, 100 years into the future. The cartoon is thus celebratings its 50th anniversary.
