    Happy birthday today (Monday) to two Olympic champions celebrating a total of 118 years today.

    No hurdles were involved in their total of three Olympic Games and four Olympic gold medals.

    One of these champions will be called "W" today and the other athlete will be "M".

    Athlete "W" was 12 years old when athlete "M" was born.

    Both champions were born on the same continent.

    "M" was born in the city where "W" won the Olympic gold medal.

    Can you name our two birthday champions on this 20th Monday of 2022?

    Please remember that no research is allowed for this quiz.

    Good luck.

        Easy to forget that Lewis grew up in Los Angeles since he made his mark in high school after moving up north.

          Happy 65th birthday today to Joan Benoit (Samuelson) and happy 53rd birthday today to Steve Lewis. Very good jobs Olli and bambam1729.

          Joan Benoit was born in Maine and won the Olympic gold medal in Los Angeles (1984) at the first ever Olympic marathon for women.

          Yes, Steve Lewis was born in Los Angeles and won two Olympic gold medals four years after Joan Benoit won her gold medal.. Lewis won the 400 in 43.87 and then ran the second leg (43.69) on the winning U.S. four by 400 relay team. Steve Lewis took the Olympic silver medal in the 400 (44.21) at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games in Spain. He anchored the U.S. four by 400 relay team (43.4) to another gold medal.

          Thank you, Olli, bambam1729, and cigar95.
