|After 64 years, the Summer Olympics return to London on Friday.|
Also back in England's capital will be the world's oldest living Olympic gold medalist: Sammy Lee, who turns 92 on Wednesday.
When the Fresno, Calif.-born son of Korean immigrants won gold in the 10-meter platform dive in 1948 — with a bronze in the 3-meter springboard — it was the first time an American of Asian heritage stood tallest at the Olympic podium.
