    Happy birthday today to an Olympic champion who competed in three consecutive Olympics.

    This champion set an Olympic record in the first of those three Games and this performance was third on the all-time list.

    Four years after winning that Olympic gold medal, our birthday athlete won an Olympic silver medal, but not in the same event as that gold medal performance.

    Unscramble these eight letters to find an extra clue: Moo La Hak.

    Our birthday athlete was born on the second Sunday in January (some say February, but I believe that may be incorrect) 71 years ago.

    Go ahead and name our mystery athlete.

    I think GaryC gave this one away with another thread that he opened this morning.

    Happy birthday (71) today to Madeline Manning-Jackson. I'll give this one to you, tandfman and to GaryC. Madeline won the 1968 Olympic 800 in a great race for her (she set an American record). She ran the second leg (51.9) on the silver medal four by 400 relay team in Munich in 1972. At Montreal (1976) she did not make the 800 final (as was the case in Munich). Very good tandfman and GaryC.
