  • Long Beach Marathon

    Happy 71st birthday today (Tuesday) to an Olympic champion who broke the world record more than twice during a career which spanned two Olympic Games.

    This champion won the first of two Olympic medals less than four hours from turning 22 years old.

    Our birthday athlete did compete in the hurdles, however not at the Olympic Games.

    Please name our birthday champion for this day which is two weeks from Halloween.

      Chicago, you got him. Happy birthday (71) today to Bob Seagren. Bob, of course won the pole vault in Mexico City (1968) and took the silver medal four years later in Munich. Would he have won in Munich had he been able to use his "new" pole? Maybe. Seagren, I believe, ran under 53 seconds for the 400 hurdles. Was he a candidate for the decathlon? I don't know.
