## Hit and Run by Ifor

### Puzzle explanation

The extra letters from wordplay spelt out “read one row in reverse; insert two entry numbers” (and vice versa from the other letter choices). The puzzle celebrated the achievement of Edward Eagan (reversed in row 2) in winning gold medals at both summer and winter Olympic Games, for boxing in 1920 (Antwerp) and bobbing (bobsleigh) in 1932 (Lake Placid). Only the numbers 20 and 32 for the corresponding years were entered in the grid, with 20 = BOXING and 32 = BOBBING.
