Name that Flyover city! — November 27, 2019

Welcome back! We hope you are enjoying Name that Flyover City!

A review of today’s questions:

  1. This city was the first U.S. city, and only the third in the world, to host the modern Olympics.
  2. This city and the Canadian city Windsor are connected through a tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge.
  3. The first successful hand transplant was performed in this city in 1999.

And here are the answers:

    1. St. Louis, MO—It was a somewhat chaotic event, but some records were set. Track athlete Archie Hahn set a record time of 21.6 seconds in the 200 meters and the record stood for 28 years.
    2. Detroit, MI—The Detroit-Canada Tunnel connected the two cities. It’s the second businest crossing between the US and Canada.
    3. Louisville, KY–Doctors at the Kleinert, Kutz and Associates Hand Care Center performed the first successful hand transplant. Two years later, a team at Jewish Hospital installed the first self-contained artificial heart in a patient.

Thanks for playing Name that Flyover city!
