I had to borrow a couple of symbols from a non-standard font so the puzzle can be found in image form here[^] (7, 9).

Edit: So I just posted what I thought was an amusing little puzzle. I didn't expect some kind of Spanish Inquisition[^]!

Hint 1: Try toying around with the idea of flexibility

Hint 2: If your childhood coincides with the 70s or 80s you might have been gifted this gifted one

Hint 3: whose story is told in the 2nd word at index 0, 2, 6, 7 & 8?

Answer: STRETCH ARMSTRONG

Even though the repeated characters from the first word were a bit distracting I really expected someone to spot ARMSTRONG straight away (No. 1, astronaut, down, moon, Apollo command module - how hard can it be?) leaving only the right first word to discover - a quick Google would have revealed the relevance of the trademark hero (hence the medal) being pulled apart, I thought in my innocence.
I am not a number. I am a ... no, wait!
