    Happy birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion who won the gold medal just two days after taking an Olympic bronze medal.

    Our birthday athlete was born 115 years ago today, but died at the age of 43 in the same country in which this athlete was born.

    This Olympic champion did not compete for the nation in which this person was born and died.

    Only 22 years old when winning two Olympic medals, our birthday person did not compete in another Olympic Games.

    You can forget the hurdles, triple jump, and the javelin when thinking of this athlete's Olympic events.

    I know you know this champion. Please name our birthday athlete for this third Monday of 2017.

      Very good, tandfman. It is Eric Liddell who was born today, 115 years ago. Most know that Eric won the 1924 400, but less know he took the 200 bronze in Paris.
