Did you know...
... that today is 4-Time Olympian Gold Day? At the 1968 Mexico
City Olympics, American discus thrower Al Oerter became the
first track person to win an event in four consecutive Olympics, a feat only matched by Carl Lewis in the long jump.
Trivia fans: He began his career at the age of 15 when a discus landed at his feet and he threw it back past the crowd of throwers!
