  • By The Numbers

    Happy 100th birthday today (Thursday) to an Olympic champion who died at the age of 52. This athlete was 31 when winning the Olympic gold medal and was 35 when taking the Olympic silver medal. Our birthday athlete was the youngest of 5 children and competed in 4 Olympic Games. You should know that this person set an Olympic record with these numbers: 2578. Who is this champion?

    It's Adolfo Consolini,1st in the '48 Discus, and 3 time European champion (1946-54), after placing 5th in his first major championship in Paris in 1938

      Very good, rhymans. Today does mark the 100th anniversary of Adolfo Consolini's birth in Italy. Without looking it up, can anyone name his Italian teammate who took the discus silver medal in London (1948)?

                    Nice job, LopenUupunut. It is Giuseppe Tosi who took the Olympic silver medal in London (1948) and some say he was about as wide as the Great Wall of China.
