You got 'em, gm33. Happy birthday today to Luigi Beccali and Gail Devers. You know Beccali won the Olympic 1,500 in 1932 (bronze in 1936) and you know Devers won the Olympic 100 twice (1992 and 1996). Gail also won Olympic gold in the four by 100 relay in Atlanta.
You may not know that Beccali died in 1990 (just about the same time the Good Will Games were held in Seattle). He was 82 years old at his death.
