For youngest athlete, we use the day an event started (which may not always have been the day that athlete competed); similarly, for oldest athlete we use the last day of the event. In case an athlete's date of birth is not fully know, we assume (s)he was born on the first day of the year (for youngest) or on the last day of the year (for oldest). Athletes who competed posthumously (e.g. in art competitions) have been excluded.
