2018 GLOBE WALK GOES OLYMPIC! Our Inspiration of the Day – An Olympic Hero

Leave a comment

The OLYMPIC GAMES  are theme for the 2018 GLOBE WALK.  So it is fitting that we look to Nancy Greene Raine as our inspiration of the day.

In 1968, at the Olympics in Grenoble, France, Nancy Greene put Canada’s Ski Team on the map,  and we haven’t looked back.  She won both a silver and gold medal.  She was named the best female athlete of the century by the Canadian Press and Broadcast News.  She was a torch bearer at the Vancouver Olympics and today spends time in the Red Chamber as a Canadian senator.  She is 74 years old.
