The Kid

Happy 44th birthday today (Thursday) to an Olympic champion with three Olympic gold medals.

Our birthday person won two of those gold medals at the age of 19.

This athlete was not the favorite going into the Olympic Games.

You probably don't need any other clues.

Name this champion.

Steve Lewis it is. Nice jog, mcgato. Happy birthday today to the winner of the men's 400 in Seoul. I saw him win the California state high school championship 400 in Sacramento and the following year he won the Olympic gold medal.
