Marathon runner Frank Shorter, who won an Olympic gold medal in 1972, once ran the New York City marathon on a broken ankle!

In the Middle Ages, barbers not only cut hair, they performed surgery and bloodletting, and extracted teeth!

The mausoleum of the late Raymond Tse Jr. in the Rosedale and Rosehill Cemetery in New Jersey has a full-size stone Mercedes parked in the back of it!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) Who ran the New York City marathon on a broken ankle?

(2) What did barbers do in the Middle Ages?

(3) What does the mausoleum of late Raymond Tse Jr. have in the back?
