Canada’s track and field athletes on the rise

National team has depth in many different men’s, women’s events

By John MacKinnon, Edmonton Journal

EDMONTON - In the faster, higher, stronger world of the Olympic Games, athletics, as most of the world calls track and field, is the foundational sport.

Nothing is more basic or universal than running, jumping and throwing.

My connection to track and field was locked in back in 1964 at the Canadian Olympic trials, where the stars were the 100- and 200-metre sprinter Harry Jerome, 800m runner Bill Crothers and distance specialist Bruce Kidd.
