Best racing quote ever! Lifelong running advocate Dan Cumming tells his story about racing with Canadian Track & Field legend, Harry Jerome:
“…on that day I was dead even with Harry Jerome… right until the starter fired the gun!”
The 9-foot bronze statue of Harry Jerome seen in this video can be found gracing the south east shores of Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC.
Before They Were Grandparents, They Were Champions | Dan Cumming
We have moments in our lives we’ll never forget. For marathon runner Dan Cumming, that moment came when he found himself in the starting blocks with Canadian track and field legend, Harry Jerome. Listen to his story from our Before They Were Grandparents, They Were Champions event!
Before they were grandparents, they were Olympians
This week, we discovered a beautiful project from UK photographer Katherine Green. Titled 1948 Olympians, it features former athletes with photos of their Olympic moment from the last time London played host to the prestigious games.
With the London 2012 Olympics around the corner, the scope of heritage in this project is truly inspiring.
