World Record

Postby DoubleRBar » Tue Sep 10, 2013 7:44 am

Happy 67th birthday today (Tuesday) to an Olympic champion with two Olympic gold medals.
Our birthday athlete was 22 years old when winning these gold medals.
Both gold medals involved a new world record.
No hurdles were included in either event.
This athlete was born in the same state and the same year as was Bill Clinton.
Name our champion for today.

Nice job, slowcat and happy birthday Jimmy Hines. Hines, of course, won the 100 and anchored the relay to a gold medal in Mexico City.
