Was curious to know if there were Olympians who competed and won in both the Summer and Winter Olympics - Wikipedia came through … more importantly, Google actually made sense of my long question (I feel like it was only yesterday when you’d ask Google a question like a human and it would give you a response like a robot…)
Eddie Eagan (USA)
Summer: Gold Medal for Boxing (Antwerp 1920)
Winter: Gold Medal for Bobsleigh (Lake Placide, 1932)
Jacob Tullin Thams (NOR)
Summer: Silver Medal for Sailing (Berlin, 1936)
Winter: Gold Medal for Ski jumping (Chamonix, 1924)
Christa Luding (GDR)
Summer: Silver Medal for Cycling (1988 Seoul)
Winter: Gold Medal for Speed skating (1984 Sarajevo)
Clara Hughes (CAN)
Summer: Bronze medal for Cycling (1996, Atlanta)
Winter: Gold medal for Speed skating (2006, Turin)
*Also competed in 2002, 2010, and she holds the highest number of medals of any Olympian to win who competed in both the Summer and Winter Games.

IDEA: Kindle Eye Mask
Block out all other light except the book you’re reading. Advance the page by winking with your right eye, turn it back with your left eye (button controls also on side of face mask). Set a sleep timer on it - or just keep your eyes closed for 10 seconds and it automatically turns off."
