Happy birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion who died at the age of 64. Our birthday athlete was born in the only U.S. state capital with three words.
Winning the Olympic gold medal at the age of 17 (6 days before his 18th birthday), this champion is still the youngest Olympic gold medalist in his event.
Born while Theodore Roosevelt was our president, this athlete died while Richard Nixon was our president.
Can you name this Olympic champion who graduated from one of the Pacific-12 schools?
