Tapio Rautavaara (1915)

Finland's multitalented Tapio Rautavaara was a successful athlete, singer, and actor. He won Olympic gold for javelin throwing and was also a top archer. He acted in numerous Finnish films and recorded more than 300 songs before his death in 1979, the result of a brain injury caused by a slip-and-fall accident.

On 25 September 1979 Tapio Rautavaara slipped and fell at the Tikkurila Swimming Center in Vantaa and hit his head on the floor. He was taken to a nearby health center, where his injuries were not taken seriously, as staff believed him to be drunk. His head was bandaged and he was sent home. The next night, he died as a result of a cerebral hemorrhage at his home in Oulunkylä, Helsinki. He was buried in Malmi, Helsinki.

For reason unknown to me I liked this article. I had never heard of Tapio Rautavaara, but now stand corrected. Many extarordinary men are products of single mothers; their sons, no doubt, the core and meaning of the women's life. I wondered why the article did not include Tapio's love life. I know I never seen a Finnish film nor heard Finnish music. Time to go to YOUTUBE and fill that gap.

It's got to be the Finnish diet.

"Now" is the eternal present.

Wow. He was a man's man. Quite accomplished. It's a shame he was misdiagnosed.
