  • A Man For All Seasons

    Happy 83rd birthday today (Saturday) to an Olympic champion who also owns an Olympic silver medal in the same event.

    If you rearrange these three continents (Australia, Europe, and North America) in the following manner (continent where our birthday athlete was born, then the continent where this champion won the Olympic silver medal, and lastly, the continent where our birthday person won the Olympic gold medal), then you might figure out the name of this mystery athlete.

    Can you name our birthday athlete for this penultimate Saturday of August using just these clues?

    Give it a try.

      Not a bad guess, dukehjsteve, except that we celebrated Bill Nieder's birthday about eight days ago with the "Boxer". Our birthday athlete is two years younger than Nieder, however both Nieder and our birthday person have an Olympic gold and an Olympic silver medal. Of course both were born in August, but two years apart. There is something else they have in common at the Olympics, but I'm not going to tell you now because it would give you the answer.

          Happy birthday today (83) to Rafer Johnson. Very good, catson52. Rafer Johnson won the silver medal in Melbourne (1956) in the decathlon even though he was injured. Four years later in Rome, he won the Olympic decathlon gold medal. Of course both Bill Nieder and Rafer Johnson competed in the same Olympics, same event (sort of), and both got gold medals.
