Happy birthday today to an Olympic champion with two Olympic gold medals. This Olympic champion was born 70 years ago today (Thursday).
Many people have said this athlete was one of the all-time best in the event in which this person first won Olympic gold.
Our birthday athlete also competed very well in another sport (not an Olympic sport).
We have celebrated this athlete here before, so it shouldn't be too difficult to name our birthday champion who was born five days before Christmas.
The hurdles have nothing to do with this person. Now, name this champion.
