Training sprint

Here’s another picture from the photo page of the March 11 1930 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:


Leo Lermond (1906-1986) competed in the 5000 metre run at the 1928 Olympics, but failed to qualify for the 1932 games.

Clarice Kennedy (1910-1998) was remarkably accomplished. Besides sprinting, she competed in swimming, hockey, tennis, and basketball, among other sports. At the age of 59, she went to university, eventually earning a Ph.D. In 1930, she also saved the life of a drowning boy.
