    Happy 60th birthday today (Saturday) to an Olympic champion who also owns an Olympic bronze medal.

    Our birthday athlete also won a gold and a bronze medal at the World Championships.

    This champion has a gold medal from the World Indoor Championships.

    None of these medals came in the hurdles.

    About a year before winning that Olympic gold medal, our birthday athlete was married.

    You might know that this person competed in two Olympic Games, but unfortunately had a hamstring injury during the second of those two Games.

    An Olympic champion in the hurdles, who won the Olympic gold medal about 91 years ago, shares the same initials as our birthday individual.

    Please name this Olympic champion with a big birthday on this first Saturday of November.

    I think I am wrong, but I make a guess nonetheless: Said Aouita.

    Happy 60th birthday today to Said Aouita and very good, Olli. Aouita was born on this day in 1959. He won the 5,000 in Los Angeles (1984) at the age of 24. Four years later, in Seoul, he took the bronze medal in the 800 and did not make the 1,500 final because of his injury. Good guess, Olli.
