Bloke in North Dorset August 19, 2016 at 7:48 am Apparently Baron de Coubertin didn’t want women in the games: “In the Olympic Games, their primary role should be to crown the victors.” Bloke in Wales August 19, 2016 at 10:11 am Apparently Baron de Coubertin didn’t want women in the games: “In the Olympic Games, their primary role should be to crown the victors.” “Women should dress in white; just like all the other domestic appliances” – Bernie Ecclestone One or both may have been joking 🙂 Gamecock August 19, 2016 at 2:54 pm So we can now stop talking about same-sex married couples? NAH! The yapping will continue. Napsjam August 19, 2016 at 3:13 pm Presumably it makes them the first married couple to do so, period? Or is there a mixed doubles in dressage or something? john77 August 19, 2016 at 4:54 pm @ Napsjam The phrase “mixed doubles” comes from tennis.
