From Kurikka and Abidjan then Paris...

Two champions were born on March, 18 th...

Honored in Australia, the first one is named H. A. !
He was the 12th to join the 20's club...

The second one was fifth, no, fourth in the same event...
And with three of his friends, he also was second, no, he finally was first,
but two years later !
What a mess !

Who are those champions ?

The second champion is Leslie Djhone, the French specialist of 400m,
born in 1981 in Abidjan.

I was knowing about Arsi Harju but was not knowing about the second player Leslie Djhone.
