Athletes celebrating their birthdays during the Summer Olympic Games 2020


 Share

Recommended Posts

Scrolling through the entry lists, I randomly found that :ROC Aleksandra Maksakova will celebrate her birthday on an actual competition day, which is too awesome.

 

It would be curious to know how many Olympians will contest their events on their birthday. It's a small subset of Olympians with birthdays during the 16 days.

518 Olympians (so about 5%) will be celebrating their birthdays during the Olympics (23-8th)

 

Here are the Canadians celebrating their birthday on the day of their competition:

 

Mandy Bujold on July 25th first round of 51 kg boxing

Nicole Hare on July 26th in the repachage of women's four rowing* (only if they qualify for this round)

Matt Mullins on July 28th in rugby sevens (guaranteed a match here)

Derek Gee on August 3rd in the Men's team pursuit track cycling

Georgia Ellenwood on August 5th on the second day of the heptathlon 

Anicka Newell on August 5th in the women's pole vault final (if she qualifies for it)

Roland Varga on August 6th in the C1 1000 m

Nik Matveev on August 7th in the K4 500m (if they qualify for this stage)

Haven't checked the rest, but our weightlifters Eko Yuli Irawan will compete a day after his birthday and Deni will compete a day before his birthday (both compete in 25 July)

I tried to make a list of athletes competing on their birthday for 24 and 25 July.

 

On 24 July.

 

:AUT Louisa Altenhuber, lightweight double sculls

:SWE Rebecka Blomqvist, football

:CUB Daniella Fonseca, table tennis

:ITA Gianluca Galassi, volleyball

:GBR Jacob Draper, field hockey

:AUS Jack Hargreaves, rowing four

:ZAM Fikile Khosa, football

:NED Malou Pheninckx, field hockey

:ROU Sonia Ursu, basketball 

 

Also, it is possible that tennis player :USA Marcos Giron will play on that day, but draw for tennis isn't out yet. First round is on 24-25 July.

Rowers :CHN Liu Xiaoxin and :GER Oliver Zeidler will have repechage of their events on that day.

 

On 25 July, apart from :ROC Maksakova in equestrian dressage.

 

:BAH Joanna Evans, swimming 400 free

:SRB Bianca Busa, volleyball

:ARG Julieta Lazcano, volleyball

:CHN Liu Yunchen, badminton

:POL Piotr Myszka, sailing RSX

 

Also, the first round of women's 51kg in boxing is on that day. :CAN Mandy Bujold might compete, I say might because some will have a bye in the first round and I'm not sure how this will be decided.

In tennis, :GRE Maria Sakkari and :AUS John Peers might play their first round matches depending on the draw.

She does, I just include in the list athletes who will compete on their birthday. I left her out because rhythmic gymnastics start later on.
