Ageless Yifter the Shifter

Legendary Olympian Miruts Yifter turns 63 today. Or maybe he turned 69 back on January 1st. Nobody really knows, maybe not even Yifter. Regardless, his gold medals in both the 5000m and 10000m at the 1980 Moscow Olympics are still quite an accomplishment for a man who was 36 at the time (or was he 42)?
