    Happy 77th birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion who competed in three Olympic Games and won the gold medal at the first of those three Games.

    Unscramble these nine letters to get a word that may help you discover our birthday athlete: "To My Lean N".

    This champion competed in three different events in the first of those three Olympic Games.

    You could say that our birthday person was very involved in the sport of track and field during a fairly long career.

    No hurdles were involved in our birthday athlete's Olympic appearances.

    Asia, North America, and Europe are where this athlete competed in the Olympics.

    Our birthday athlete was born in one of the three continents mentioned in the previous sentence.

    Please name this Olympic gold medal winner for this penultimate Monday of May.

    So I think we're looking at an athlete who competed in Tokyo, Mexico City and Munich who was born in one of those three continents. Someone who was involved in the sport for many years.

    How about Lynn Davies who was later the President of British Athletics?

    Happy 77th birthday today to Lynn Davies and very good, Trickstat. Most of you already know that Lynn Davies won the Olympic gold medal in the long jump beating the defending Olympic champion (Ralph Boston). Davies also ran the 100 and anchored the British four by 100 relay team in Tokyo (1964). He also competed in the Mexico City and Munich long jumps. Happy birthday, Lynn.
