  • World Champion Birthday

    I won the high jump gold medal in the world championships and today I turn 43 years old. That's all the information you get. Who am I?

      TrackCEO, you got it. Yes, today (Wednesday) is Troy Kemp's 43rd birthday. Happy birthday Troy.

        According to the IAAF, Kemp won't make 43 until June 18, but Rolandas Verkys (2.34 PR) made 43 yesterday.

          IAAF missed it by one month. Troy's birthday was today.

              Tila says June 18, too. Could both of those sources be wrong?

                    I was using TFN (January, 1996) and Wikipedia: Both say March 18. As far as ATFS, they use whatever IAAF has which could be wrong. March 18 could be wrong, too. I will research it and see what I get. Whatever month it appears he was born on the 18th!

                      If Troy's birthday really is June 18, it'll be quite ironic.

                      My birthday is June 18! :P

                      In any case, I'm writing to these folks:

                          Happy birthday, Steve! :P

                          What's your HJ PR?

                          Mine is 1.85 (but I was wearing hurdle spikes that day.)

                            Thank you Ken ! It's 1.97 in 1965.

                              Happy birthday dukehjsteve. I checked with Bahamas Track and they say Troy Kemp's birthday is June 18, so I apologize and again, say happy birthday dukehjsteve.
