  • Heroes Establish Legendary Examples

    Happy birthday today (Tuesday) to two Olympic champions who competed in different events in our sport. Today these two champions celebrate a total of 143 years of life. Together they own a total of three Olympic gold medals.

    Both set world records in winning the gold medals. These two people speak the same language. Our birthday champions both won their gold medals in the 1960's.

    Take the year each athlete was born and add the four digits for each of those years and you should come up with a total of 21 for each year. The younger athlete was 21 when winning the Olympic gold medal. The older athlete was 22 when striking Olympic gold.

    Born on a Friday, the older athlete was nine years old when the younger athlete was born. Winning the Olympic gold medal on a Friday, the younger athlete was born on a Tuesday. It was a Tuesday when the older person won Olympic gold.

    You may eliminate the hurdles when trying to come up with your answer. Cancel the pole vault, discus, hammer throw, and the triple jump, too. Who are these two champions?
