Happy 90th birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion who was born on a Monday and won that Olympic gold medal on a Monday some 67 years ago (last month).

Our birthday athlete also owns an Olympic silver medal, but in a different event.

Some might say the father of our birthday athlete inspired his child to compete at the Olympics.

A famous actor (especially on television) was about a month away from turning 15 years old when our birthday athlete was born.

These two people (birthday athlete & famous actor) share the same initials.

You probably know that this athlete was the favorite going into the Olympics and our birthday person set a new Olympic record in winning the gold medal.

Please name this champion with a birthday on this second Monday in August.
