Canadian History Ehx

Dec 23, 2019

George Orton was born and raised in Canada, but he would compete in the 1900 Olympics for an American university. 

One of the greatest runners of his time, he took home first place in the steeplechase and would become Canada’s first Olympic champion.

Unfortunately, no one really knew for 77 years. 

This is his story.
