Happy 75th birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion with two Olympic gold medals. Our champion was born on a Saturday during an Olympic year and competed in three Olympic Games.
This Olympic champion set more than one world record and was the first to break a "major barrier" in track and field. The world records, the Olympic gold medals, and the "barrier-breaker" were all in the same track and field event.
Our birthday champion shares the same initials as a very famous songwriter.
Born very close to where another Olympic champion was born, our birthday athlete last set a world record the same year that President John F. Kennedy was inaugurated. By the way, that other Olympic champion won five Olympic gold medals.
Unscramble the following nine letters to find out where our birthday champion was born some 75 years ago today: Samoa Riti.
A favorite in all three Olympics in which this athlete competed, our birthday champion "only" placed fifth in the first of those three Olympic Games.
You can unscramble these five letters to find out the last name of our birthday athlete's spouse: T Rose.
Do you have enough clues for this Olympic champion born today, 75 years ago? Name the person.
