    Happy 69th birthday today (Saturday) to an Olympic champion who owns five Olympic medals.

    Our birthday athlete competed in two Olympic Games and won medals in both Games.

    You know none of those Olympic medals came in any hurdle events.

    This champion won a complete set of Olympic medals (gold, silver, & bronze) in those two Olympic Games.

    There was a "little" controversy in one of our birthday athlete's gold medal winning events.

    I can tell you that this athlete was born in the same continent where our birthday person won Olympic gold.

    Who is this Olympic champion with five Olympic medals?

    Could be Borzov, with the controversy being the US sprinters missing the heats of the 100 in Munich.

      Happy birthday today (69) to Valeriy Borzov and way to go, mcgato. Borzov was born in Sambir (Ukraine) and you know he won two Olympic gold medals in Munich (1972) and one silver medal (relay). He won two bronze medals in Montreal (1976). We'll always wonder: What If Eddie Hart and Rey Robinson had made it to the final in the Munich 100? Borzov was the favorite going into the Munich Olympics and he probably would have won, even with Hart and Robinson there, but the truth is, we'll never know.
