In 1959, Harry Jerome, aged 19, was Canada’s most promising Olympic track and field star. But, in 1962, after suffering a leg injury and when all believed his racing days were over, Harry began the greatest comeback in track and field history. Through the years of unparalleled political turbulence, personal challenge, and racial conflict, Harry Jerome kept his head down and ran, displaying a strength of character and willful perseverance every bit as impressive as bis record-setting athleticism.
