  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/golf/55204070 Not an Olympian but legendary golf commentator Peter Alliss has died. At 89 he was still the BBC's chief commentator and last worked at November's US Masters. He was also a successful player on the European tour with numerous Ryder Cup appearances.
  3. Came across this colour film of highlights from the 1948 men's road race. There is a brief bit of tandem track cycling first. Watch out for a fight between two of the riders during the race. Also interesting to see the riders repairing their own tyres during the race when not in the vicinity of the team pits.
