Happy 65th birthday today (Friday) to an OIympic champion who also owns an Olympic silver medal.
This champion competed in three Olympic Games.
At the age of 32, our birthday athlete won the Olympic Trials.
You don't need to think about the hurdles when trying to figure the name of our birthday champion.
A Pan American Games champion, this person was in Seoul (1988), Barcelona (1992), Atlanta (1996), Sydney (2000), Athens (2004), and Beijing (2008), but not as a competitive athlete.
Our birthday gold medalist was not the favorite going into the Olympic Games in which this athlete won the gold medal.
In winning the Olympic gold medal, our birthday person set a national and an Olympic record.
Can you name this famous gold medalist? Please do.
