    Happy birthday today (Saturday) to an Olympic champion who was born on a Saturday 73 years ago today and won Olympic gold on a Saturday over 43 years ago.

    Our birthday champion competed in three Olympic Games and won gold medals in the first two of those three Games.

    You might know that this athlete did not compete in any of the Olympic hurdles.

    Born less than 400 miles from the Olympic stadium where this person won the Olympic gold medal, our birthday athlete went on to earn a doctoral degree.

    Please name this Olympic champion with a birthday on this second Saturday in December.

    Hmm, won in two games and was born "less than 400 miles from *the* Olympic stadium where this person wan the Olympic gold". So that might mean either of those stadiums?

    Ruth Fuchs probably was born less than 400 miles from Munich, so perhaps it might be her? I don't know about doctoral degrees, though.

      Happy 73rd birthday today to Ruth Fuchs and very good, Olli. Ruth, of course, won the javelin throw in Munich and in Montreal. She was eighth place in the Moscow Olympics of 1980.
