I also began researching and writing a book about Canada’s first Olympic champion, George Orton. It was completed in 2018.
Here, I’m at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia with legendary U.S. track star Jim Ryun, promoting my book, The Greatest Athlete (you’ve never heard of).
Jim had never heard of Orton, either, even though he was known as the “Father of the Penn Relays”.
I had to educate him.
