Re: “Olympic medallist’s sister pushing for Richmond recognition,” News, July 23.
Great article and I learned so much about (Harry Jerome’s) connection to Richmond.
We all see his statue in Stanley Park.
I also did not know about the racism they (he and Valerie) experienced but sadly that still goes on.
I totally agree with his sister about some acknowledgement of this Canadian sports hero. Wow — a bronze in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
Then he lived in Richmond and taught our kids.
Definitely, Richmond must recognize this Canadian and local hero.
