Hope you all had a good Halloween yesterday. Today (Thursday) we say "Happy Birthday" to two Olympic champions.
One of these two was born 100 years ago this day, while the other was born 50 years ago today.
The older of the two won Olympic gold in a field event and died about two months after the Beijing Olympic Games.
Also winning Olympic gold in a field event, the younger of these two athletes also set two world records during this athlete's career.
Born in Europe, the younger athlete won Olympic gold in Asia. Born in North America, the older person went to college in California and won Olympic gold in California.
Both field events are part of the decathlon.
An athlete from Japan took the silver medal when our older athlete won the Olympic gold medal.
It was an American athlete that won the silver medal when our younger person won the gold medal.
Enough clues. Name these two Olympic champions, born the day after Halloween.
