  • Dee Dee

    Happy birthday today (Wednesday) to an Olympic champion whose mother was a teacher.

    Born 57 years ago today, our birthday athlete died about 18 years ago.

    This champion won a World Championship gold and a silver medal.

    I'm sure you know this athlete also won two Olympic silver medals.

    No hurdles were involved in any of these medals.

    Someone will say this is way too easy and it might be.

    Ok, smarty-pants, name our birthday athlete for this last Wednesday before Christmas.

      Florence Griffith-Joyner is correct, Master403. As you know, Flo-Jo broke the world record in the 100 and the 200, but what you might not know is that she was the seventh child of eleven children. Good job, Master403.

        You're right, it was much too easy. As with "Lee" the other day, what's with "Dee Dee"?

            I believe Dee Dee was more of a family nickname for her.

              I knew just from the title.

              I was the biggest Florence Griffiths Joyner fan in the world in '87, half way through '88 when the penny dropped, I wasn't a Flo Jo fan.
