Go to Summer Olympics 1960, that is where I found out the information and his name is listed as "Knuth" (which is why I kept trying to change it). Soxrock 20:57, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Hi. Knud is how it’s spelled in Denmark. Nobody is named Knuth in Denmark and I have never ever seen his name spelled Knuth in any Danish article or lexicon. He is born Knud Enemark Jensen as far as I know. It’s common in English to spell Danish Knud with Knuth, Cnut, Caunte or other variants, as it indeed sound just like that in flat provincial Danish.
I went to Danmarks Statistik and found there is 22000 Danes with the name "Knud" while only 11 with "Knuth", in 2006. There is virtual nil chance that a Dane born in 1937 with the name of Knud should have it spelled Knuth. Twthmoses 21:41, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
Ok, thanks, I wanted to make sure that when I kept persisting that it was Knuth that when you were changing it you knew what you were doing because I read it Knuth. Soxrock 22:20, 13 June 2006 (UTC)


Hi, i write from Italy so excuse me of my bad english. I read the compensation was of one million of italian liras. In the 1960 one milion was a very large amount: monthly salary of an industry's worker was a little less of 40.000 liras. I read the currency conversion of one million of 1960 liras is 1600 dollars. Dollars of what age? 1960? -- (talk) 09:36, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, that was Dollars of 1960. I have replaced it with the inflation-adjusted value (2012 $). -- (talk) 18:29, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Image requested[edit]

I have added the "image requested" template to request a portrait or close-up of Jensen to be placed in the infobox in the article. The article already has a (fair use) photo of Jensen's fatal accident. Gildir (talk) 15:31, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
