    Happy 60th birthday today (Tuesday) to an Olympic champion who competed in two Olympic Games and still has a "cloud" of controversy from those Games.

    No hurdles were involved in this athlete's gold medal.

    Our birthday athlete won two World Championship silver medals in the same event.

    Who is this athlete with a birthday on this last Tuesday of July?

    Rearrange these seven letters to give you some help with our birthday athlete: Lob Mocul.

    Hello,

    I think it's Petra Felke, first woman to reach 80m at the javelin and who
    won a gold medal at Seoul in 1988.
    Happy birthday to Petra Felke !

    JM

    Happy birthday yesterday (Tuesday) to Petra Felke (60). Very good, jmdjmd. Felke won the javelin in 1988 and was seventh place in 1992. Well done, jmdjmd.

    Thank you, noone. That clue didn't help much. Those seven letters should have read: Ob Mocul.

    Not quite. You got the first two letters correct and then missed the next five letters.

    Agreed. I was thinking it was Club Omo or something along those lines, but I don't know what club Felke was part of.
