  • 50 Next Year

    Which Olympic champion turns 49 years old today (Friday)? Here are some hints: He won his gold medal running one lap of an Asian track some twenty years ago. He defeated a two-time Olympic champion in winning his gold medal. He could do an excellent Stevie Wonder impression. Name this Olympic champion with a birthday today.

            Other top american athletes who had birthdays in august include greg foster, 50 , mel lattany 49 and roger kingdom 46.

            Seems like yesterday when I was a kid watching these great athletes on BBC tv. I turned 40 this august too. I should be happy but I'm still trying to contemplate what that means. :?

              I had the honor of having Andre beat the stink out of me in a heat of the 1978 Junior Nationals in Bloomington, Indiana. I recall having quite a bit of wind-burn from the rush as he went past........... ops:
