This from the Olympics:http://www.theonion....g_suit_may_give
Also, the strangest Olympic story ever:
Eighteen-year-old Helen Stephens, nicknamed "Fulton Flash" after her birthplace of Fulton, Missouri, won the 100 m dash in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. She visited Hitler's box and offered a handshake; Hitler groped her.
"He gets hold of my fanny," the Fulton Flash said, "and he begins to squeeze and pinch and hug me up, and he said, 'You're a true Aryan type. You should be running for Germany.'"
Then Hitler laid on the big offer: a weekend at his retreat in Berchtesgaden. She turned him down.
Side note: At the Olympics, Helen Stephens beat the reigning champ, Stanislawa Walasiewicz of Poland, and there were accusations that Helen was actually a man. After a genital inspection proved otherwise, the matter was dropped.
Walasiewicz, who subsequently changed her name to Stella Walsh, was killed in an armed robbery decades later. The autopsy showed that she actually had male genitalia (though she had both XX and XY pair of chromosomes). From that point on, she was often referred to as "Stella the Fella."
