There's Gold In That Family

Postby DoubleRBar » Mon Jun 11, 2012 7:59 am

Happy birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion who is still alive today. This champion won two Olympic gold medals and one Olympic silver medal.

Our birthday athlete also won a World Championship gold medal and a World Championship silver medal.

This Olympic champion was born over forty years ago today, however our birthday athlete is not yet sixty years of age.

A world record holder, this Olympic athlete was married twice. Both spouses won Olympic gold medals in track and field.

As a 21 year-old athlete, our birthday person won the first of two Olympic gold medals. The first of those two Olympic gold medals was an Olympic record and the second was a world record.

Who is this Olympic champion born on the 11th day of June?

This is a unique case in history where an Olympic champion, had two wives who were also Olympic champions. :shock:
The name of this case, Yuri Sedykh, the names of the Olympic wives - Lyudmila Kondratyeva and Natalya Lisovskaya. :D
Since the last live in France and their daughter, appears in the hammer throw.

At first it was so: http://www.google.ru/imgres?imgurl=http ... EwAw&dur=0
