    We need an A. C. born in 1923, who won gold with injured back. Probably won in London or Helsinki. I guess he/she is American, since that might be about 7000 km from Norway.

    Why would they mention Viren's blood doping? There is zero evidence for it.

    This is not to deny that he might have done that, but so might any sportsman or woman during that era.
