Happy birthday today (Wednesday) to two Olympic champions who ran the same event at the Olympic Games some 64 years apart.

The older of these two athletes was 60 when the younger one was born.

One of our birthday athletes won three Olympic gold medals, one Olympic silver medal, and one Olympic bronze medal.

Our birthday athletes were born approximately 746 miles (1,200 km) from each other.

You might already know that one of these two champions was the only person from a certain country to win an individual track gold medal at a certain Olympic Games.

President George Herbert Walker Bush was born on the 19th birthday of our older birthday athlete and both people fought during World War II.

It probably wouldn't surprise you to find out that one of our birthday people won three World Championship gold medals, four World Championship silver medals, and one World Championship bronze medal.

No hurdles were connected with any of our birthday athletes' Olympic medals.

Please name both birthday athletes for this second Wednesday of June.
