    Happy 70th birthday today (Sunday) to an Olympic champion with a complete set of Olympic medals (gold, silver, & bronze).

    This champion won that complete set competing in two Olympic Games.

    No hurdles were involved in any of these Olympic medals.

    The spouse of our birthday athlete also owns a complete set of Olympic medals.

    You might already know that this birthday athlete was born in the same continent where this champion first won Olympic gold.

    Go ahead and name our birthday person for this third Sunday of October.

    Happy 70th birthday today to Valeriy Borzov. Nice work, bambam1729. Of course you know Borzov won the 100 and the 200 in Munich (1972). The Americans won the four by 100 relay and that's where Borzov got his only Olympic silver medal. Four years later in Montreal, he took two bronze medals at the 1976 Olympic Games: Bronze in the 100 and bronze in the relay.

    Yes, his wife, Ludmilla Touischeva competed in three Olympics (1968, 1972, & 1976) as a gymnast. She also won the complete set of Olympic medals.

    You're right, bambam1729, but I didn't want to get into too much gymnastics.
