    "...and because they couldn't believe that a Canadian could have run that fast they rounded it to ten point flat..." Bastards!! Reminds me of the crap Graeme Obree went through.

    Wonderful story of a true Canadian hero. A story of a young mans struggle with life in a white world. With the help of those that believed in him and loved him - over came the critics, the injuries, and the racism. Thoughtful, sensitive and eye opening.
