ONE BEAUTIFUL MORNING...

19 September 1922 both husband and wife Dana Zatopkova and Emil Zátopek from Czechoslovakia were born. They both were winners in the same Olympic Games in 1952 in Helsinki. He won the 5,000m, successfully defended his 10,000m title in his first-ever marathon! Dana won the gold in javelin throwing during the same Olympic Games right after Emil's victory.
