  • My Three Sons

    Happy birthday today (Sunday) to an Olympic champion who celebrates 54 years today.

    This champion competed in only one Olympic Games and in two events.

    No hurdles were involved in those two events.

    Our birthday champion won two World Championship gold medals and one World Championship silver medal.

    You might already know that this athlete set two world records before turning to coaching.

    Who is this champion with a birthday on this third Sunday of February?

    The age and the world record would be right for Leroy Burrell, as would the turning to coaching. .

      Happy 54th birthday today to Leroy Burrell. Good job, tandfman. Burrell's only Olympic Games (1992, Barcelona) resulted in a fifth place (poor start) in the 100 and a gold medal and world record in the four by 100 relay where he ran the second leg (giving the baton to Dennis Mitchell, who turned 55 years old yesterday).

      By the way, his three sons are Cameron, Josh, and Jaden. You probably remember Leroy's sister (Dawn) who was a pretty good long jumper.

      Thank you, tandfman.
