Irina Timcic

B. 1910-09-04, Chernivtsi, then part of Austria, from 1918 to 1940 Romanian, now in Ukraine, represented Romania
Figure Skating
1936 HP
Mixed Pairs 13th 32

Eisenbeisser and Timcic represented Romania. Considering that both were born in Chernivtsi, and they skated together, it seems logical to assume that they were still living there at the time of their Olympic appearance. Timcic probably stayed in Romania or Ukraine. Even though a sizeable Romanian minority remains in Chernivtsi, it seems simplest to treat them as Romanians, rather than Ukranians.

1500 m gold 21st 14th 6416.64
30312.65

On the 500 m at Torino, she fell foul of the new false start rule. Her opponent had caused a first false start, so the second start would be the final one. Timmer was not standing completely still, so she was disqualified. She took revenge in the 1000 m, where she finished just 0.04 and 0.06 ahead of silver and bronze (Anni Friesinger) to regain the title she won at Nagano.

Anatoly Timofeyev

Olympic Competitor nr 6580

(*) nothing is known about the Russian team rosters except the eight entered fencers. Most likely, only four or five actually fought. I am assuming the four best (highest placed in the individual event) fencers competed in the two team matches.
