Happy birthday today (Thursday) to two Olympic champions both of whom won Olympic gold medals on a Saturday.

These two athletes won Olympic gold medals approximately 60 years apart and were born a total of 160 years ago.

One of our champions was 50 years old when the other person was born.

They did not win Olympic gold in the same event, nor did they compete in the Olympic hurdles.

You might find it interesting to know that our two birthday athletes were born about 327 miles (526 km) apart.

The older of the two champions was born approximately 4,675 miles (7,494 km) from the Olympic stadium where this person won that gold medal while the younger athlete won Olympic gold about 671 miles (1,080 km) from the site of this person's birth.

That older athlete died at the age of 76 and the younger champion turns 55 today.

I'll bet you can name at least one of these two Olympic champions. Give it a shot.
