His grandfather was a WR holder and Olympic silver medalist. His father was a WC winner.
All three competed (competes) in the same event.

My guess is, his grandfather and father are Jorma and Kimmo Kinnunen, based on the WR and medals combination you mentioned.

Yes. Mid 60's in Rieti. He's been over 71 with the 800. Long way to go go but he's only 17.
