Yes, I can help @Canadian Paul with one of these (if he's even still reading this).

Eddie Bowey (wiki) is dead.

Eddie Bowey's real name was Edwin Bowey as per Olympedia. They have his DOB as 5 Jan 1926.
A quick glance at FreeBMD reveals that there was only one Edwin Bowey born between 1920 and 1930:
Eddie Bowey b. 1928, Edmonton, London
A glance at the GRO Index reveals his fate – Edwin Bowey b. 1928 d. Q2/2016, Enfield, London.
A further search in 192.com shows an Edwin "Eddie" Bowey at a London address... until he falls off the register in 2016.

I am, just busy with a lot of projects, but thanks for the update!

Ellie Downie quits gymnastics for the sake of her mental health, not one of ours, then - she does make it clear, however, that British gymnastics has a way to go in terms of cleaning up the bullying and other bad behaviour that fucks with people's heads.

Felix Sienra dies a week after his 107th birthday.

 

There is a group for oldest olympians ? What do they do apart from reporting every death ? A very restrictive topic indeed
