Happy birthday today (Thursday) to an Olympic champion with two Olympic gold medals and two Olympic silver medals.
Our birthday athlete competed in three Olympic Games.
The two Olympic gold medals came in different events.
Both silver medals came in different events.
One gold medal and one silver medal came in the same event.
In the first of three Olympics, our birthday athlete finished in fifth place.
Raised by an aunt, this champion was born the same year Spiridon Louis (winner of first Olympic marathon) died.
You can't forget the hurdles when trying to figure our birthday champion for today, however, you can eliminate the field events.
Who is our gold medalist?
