    Happy 86th birthday today (Saturday) to an Olympic champion who did not compete in any of the Olympic hurdles, but did medal in two Olympic Games.

    Our birthday athlete won the Olympic gold medal three weeks after turning 27.

    When this champion won the Olympic gold medal, teammates from the same country took the silver and bronze medals.

    Who is our birthday champion for this second Saturday of August?

    Like I said for Carr in '32, this time, Nieder fits in '60.

    Happy birthday today (86) to Bill Nieder, winner of the 1960 Rome shot put. Nieder already owned an Olympic silver medal from Melbourne (1956). Very well done, dukehjsteve. You know your track and field.

    Bill Nieder later became a professional boxer. What was his pro record as a boxer?
