  • No Gold Medal

    This athlete did not win an Olympic gold medal, but did place 7th in the Olympics. She turns 57 years today (Tuesday) and was known as the best all-around athlete in women's track and field in the United States. Who is the birthday athlete born today some 57 years ago?

      Nice job jkoregon. Happy birthday today to Jane Frederick. Jane is 57 today. How many of you remember seeing her compete? I can still picture her in Eugene at the Olympic Trials in 1976.

        And I can picture her winning a medal at the World Championships in Rome in 1987.

          That's right. She was 35 years old in Rome. What a great performance for her. She wasn't that far from the silver medal. What I remember about that heptathlon is that Jackie took the gold medal by over 500 points. It was a good "warm-up" for Seoul in 1988.
