Olympians in Love
Photos of the Olympic Judo final match in Barcelona in 1992, where Miriam Blasco (right) of Spain won the gold over Nicola Fairweather (left) of GB.
In a documentary for the 25 year anniversary of the Barcelona Olympics yesterday, Miriam revealed that she and Nicola have been married for almost 2 years. Their relationship began soon after the Olympics in 1992, and at their wedding they exchanged both rings and medals.
Gosh, so two Olympic finalists, the silver and gold medalists, got together, and then decades later married and exchanged their medals? What they must have had to go through! Where is the movie?!
(Just to clarify, it is Nicola Fairbrother, not Fairweather.)
