Trivia: Test Your Olympic Knowledge (Part 4)

The Summer Olympics begin on July 27, but how well do you know the Games? All this week, Patch will post trivia questions to test your knowledge.

From Michael Phelps winning eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics to Nadia Comăneci receiving the first perfect 10 in 1976, there have been several unforgettable moments in Olympic history.

As hundreds of world-class athletes prepare to compete in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games beginning July 27, Patch is celebrating the start of the games by posting Olympic trivia questions all this week.

Select your answers in the polls below, and tell us about your favorite Olympian in the comments section. We'll post the correct answers in the comments at 5 p.m. today, and make sure to check back tomorrow for another quiz!
