    Happy 57th birthday today (Monday) to an Olympic champion with two Olympic gold medals.

    Both gold medals came with Olympic records.

    This champion also won a World Indoor gold medal, a World Cup gold medal, and a World Championship bronze medal.

    The first Olympic gold medal our birthday athlete won came on a Monday in the same continent in which this person was born.

    You might already know that this individual was ranked number one in the world for four years by Track & Field News.

    Did I tell you that this athlete also set a new world record?

    Please name this Olympic champion with a birthday on the last Monday of August.

    Happy 57th birthday today to Roger Kingdom. Nice work, tandfman. Yes, Kingdom replicated Lee Calhoun's two Olympic wins of 1956 & 1960 when Kingdom won gold in Los Angeles and Seoul.
