I am perhaps best known for my Bronze medal performance at the LA Olympic Games in 1984, when all eyes were on the American sweetheart Mary Decker, who collided with a bare-footed South African girl named Zola Budd. The American never finished the race, and I snuck in there to take the Bronze medal. I’ve held every Canadian record for middle distance from 1000m - 10K on the roads, and have held the 1500m record since 1985. I’ve enjoyed off shoots of my running career in my professional life as a business owner, television analyst, event coordinator, motivational speaker, personal, corporate and performance athletics coach. My passion for over 30 years has been to inspire people of all ages and ability levels through physical fitness; to take steps toward better health, achieve personal goals, and be active and happy. I’m most proud to say I have 4 Olympic Gold Medals in raising 4 children!
