When we moved to this tiny town my brother and I joined the swim team. We did not realize we were in the halls (pool) of greatness -
"Over a 14 year period one of the OF swimmers was on every
Canadian Olympic, Commonwealth, or Pan American Games team. Under Coach G’s
direction the team won 26 national competitions and half the Olympic
team in 1964 was from his club."
One of the boys we swam with was on the 1972 Olympic team and was in the finals in two events.
Brother and I both became excellent swimmers and I worked as a life guard and swimming teacher when we moved back to the States.
