Happy 73rd birthday today (Sunday) to an Olympic champion. Our birthday person won the Olympic gold medal at the age of 24.
Born on a Saturday in February, this champion was not the favorite going into the Olympic final.
This champion has a son who plays professional soccer (football).
After track and field, our birthday person competed in bobsledding.
Sharing the same initials as an actor in the television series "Perry Mason", our birthday athlete won the Olympic gold medal on a Tuesday in October.
You might remember the old man in the movie "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre". The actor who played this part shares the same initials as our birthday gold medalist.
Think about the hurdles when trying to figure the correct name of our birthday person.
Blomesche Wildnis is a big hint for the name of this champion athlete.
Now, name our birthday athlete for today.
