You ever wonder when your favorite athletes were born? I have.

I started looking for a list of Athlete’s birthdays. Imagine my surprise when I came cross an interesting fact. Finding a full, good list of athlete’s birthdays is more difficult than you would think. Especially in the age of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram it should be an easier task, right?

When I googled “athlete birthdays” I usually found a top 10 or 15 list. That’s cool. Except, every list is practically the same. Boring.  

So, we here at FANTOM are creating full list of athlete birthdays.  You can see our other weeks of June:

Here is the list of athletes born during the final week of June.
