    Happy birthday today (Friday) to an Olympic champion who was born on a Friday the 13th and was pretty good at basketball and even tennis.

    This champion did not compete in the Olympic hurdles, but did win two Olympic medals in only one Olympics.

    Our birthday individual was born on the tenth birthday of a person who would become fairly well-known for such work as "Strangers on a Train", "Rear Window", "Vertigo", and "Marnie", to name a very few.

    You may not know that this athlete won that Olympic gold medal approximately 444 miles from the place where this person was born and that our Olympian died less than 22 miles from the site where this champion was born.

    Born 112 years ago on a Friday, our birthday athlete died on a Friday at the age of 66.

    The Olympic gold medal won by our birthday individual came with a world record.

    Any chance you might know who this champion is?

    Please name our birthday athlete for this second Friday of August.
