    1. The Olympic athlete also overcame polio. (Ray Ewry)
    ANSWER= Ray Ewry, the Olympic athlete<~~add comma also overcame polio.

    2. Ewry competed in the standing high jump, the standing long jump, and the standing triple jump. (events not part of today’s Olympic Games)
    ANSWER= Ewry competed in events not part of today’s Olympic Games, the standing high jump, the standing long jump, and the standing triple jump.
    With this construction (series listing the specifics), you need a colon (:) after "Olympic Games" not a comma. It's also not an appositive then. Try this one again.

    3. He had an advantage over today’s athletes: when he competed, four Olympics were held during the nine-year period. (1900-1908)
    ANSWER= He had an advantage over today’s athletes: when he competed, 1900-1908, four Olympics were held during the nine-year period.
    Those are years in the parentheses, right? Put the years as close to the word "year" as possible.
