Happy birthday today (Saturday) to an Olympic champion who was born 95 years ago today and died at the age of 89 after competing in only one Olympic Games.

Even though this athlete had a fractured hip as a young child, our birthday person went on to win two Olympic gold medals.

Our birthday individual was born less than 40 miles from an Olympic stadium, but not the Olympic stadium where this athlete won Olympic gold.

You may be interested (or not) to know that this champion was born about six weeks after President Jimmy Carter.

No hurdles were involved any of the three Olympic events in which our birthday athlete competed.

If I mentioned Saudi Arabia, would that help?

Name this Olympic champion for this third Saturday of November.
