Happy birthday today (Tuesday) to two Olympic champions born a total of 187 years ago.

One of these two people was born on a Tuesday and died on a Tuesday while the other athlete turns 75 today.

Our birthday athletes competed in a total of four Olympic Games and won gold, silver, and bronze medals.

You may already know that one of these two set a world record in winning that Olympic gold medal and the other individual never married.

The older athlete was born on Gene Autry's first birthday and this older athlete was 37 when the younger athlete was born.

Did you know that our older person was born on Greer Garson's fourth birthday?

Don't know who Greer Garson is? Research that one.

Relax, no hurdles were involved with these two champions at the Olympic Games.

Interesting to note that one of our birthday athletes won two Olympic gold medals two days apart and won those gold medals approximately 862 miles (1,387 km) from the place where this champion was born.

At the age of 57, this champion's kidneys failed and this person died the following year.

Several Olympians have won a complete set of Olympic medals (gold, silver, & bronze) and one of our birthday athletes for today did that at three Olympic Games.

It's time to name both Olympic champions on this final Tuesday of September.
