A graduate of a university founded in 1787, this athlete was a NCAA champion, a Goodwill Games champion, as well as a world record holder.
Gene Kelly (Singing' in the Rain) and Bill Cullen (The Price is Right) both graduated from the same university as our birthday athlete.
Over 28,000 students attend the school our birthday person attended.
This is not the first time we have celebrated this athlete's birthday.
Don't look to the field events for our birthday person's name.
Who is this champion turning 50 years today?
As someone above guessed, this must be Roger Kingdom-Vienna, Ga.
Sorry, missed the answer provided above. As I recall seeing years ago, there is a sign at the rest area off of I-75 that mentions RK coming from Vienna.
