  • Cathy, Robert, and Fermin

    Today (Friday) we have three birthdays. One of the three turns 34 today while one is 38 and the other celebrates 42 years. Two of the three won Olympic gold medals in their home countries while the third never won an Olympic gold medal. See if you can supply their last names and match them with their ages. For extra credit, pick one of them and explain why you think they had the best track and field career.

            Ok, you got it. Happy birthday today to Robert Emmiyan (forty-two), Fermin Cacho (thirty-eight), and Cathy Freeman (thirty-four). One of the loudest crowds I can ever remember was in Sydney when the gun with off for the women's 400 finals. They went crazy for her. One of the most excited winners I can remember was when Fermin won the men's 1,500 in 1992. I think the women's 1,500 went out quicker for the first 800 than did the men. Cacho ran a great last 400.
