in remembrance


 
In memory of one of Canada’s greatest Olympians. Like so many of us I remember the excitement and pride watching Kathleen Heddle, together with her rowing partner Marnie McBean, capturing two gold medals for Canada at the Summer Olympic Games of 1992 in Barcelona and a further gold medal in Atlanta in 1996. Yesterday we learnt the sad news of her passing at the age of 55 after a long battle with cancer. I send my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. Her beautiful memory is in all of our thoughts today. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦
