    Happy 71st birthday today (Tuesday) to an Olympic champion who competed in three consecutive Olympics and won medals in the final two Games, one of which was a gold medal.

    Our birthday athlete competed in North America and Europe at those three Olympic Games.

    Unscramble the six letters in our title and you'll receive a big clue.

    This champion set a world record at the Olympic Games.

    Please name our birthday athlete for this Olympic champion who was born on Cordner Nelson's 30th birthday (and the same year TFN started).

    Sea Sod is Odessa, so i assume he/she was a Soviet hurdler or multi person.

    Happy 71st birthday today to Mykola Avilov, winner of the Munich decathlon (8,454 points). Very nice job, tandfman. Avilov was born in Odessa (not Texas). He had quite a decathlon career starting in Mexico City (1968) where he took fourth place and then won the Olympic gold medal four years later in Munich. He ended his Olympic career in Montreal (1976) where he got the bronze medal.
