    Happy 44th birthday today (Sunday) to an Olympic champion who competed in three Olympic Games in the same event.

    Our birthday athlete for today also won a World Championship gold medal as well as three World Championship silver medals (same event).

    Don't concern yourself with the hurdles when wondering about this champion.

    This athlete won Olympic silver in the first of three Olympic Games.

    You may already know that this person is married and has children.

    Go ahead and name our birthday athlete for this first Sunday of July.

    Never heard of Chi Heorot, so I looked it up. Somebody here will definitely get this.

    I never heard of it either. When saw the subject line, I (wrongly) assumed it was an anagram.

    I had a hunch but looked up chi heorot which I thought may have something to do with Chicago (it doesn't), which gave it away without looking any further. My hunch was correct.

    There's a gold medalist from 1964 that might know the answer, if he read the question...

    Yes, I am really surprised that nobody popped the answer yet.

    Maybe if someone can rearrange these seven letters (GONE LOB), it might help to answer the question: Who won an Olympic gold medal and turned 44 on Monday?
