    As you probably know, for Tokyo 2020, there is a fellow there, Roy Tomazawa by name, who is tracking down all the 1964 Olympians that he can, from ANY SPORT and ANY COUNTRY. I plan to return for some fun and memories etc, and was wondering what,if anything, you folks may be doing for this most interesting adventure down memory lane.???. One or two, of my team mates plan to re-visit as well. Maybe I could be a volunteer for such a ” fun ” project.??.
    Please, let me know your thoughts on this project. Thanks, Victor Warren.
    P.S.: I have put Roy in touch with some of the ‘ 64 Canadian Olympians that I know their where-abouts etc.

      Hi Victor, thanks for sharing this with us – what a great initiative! Please do keep us posted about your project by writing to OLY@olympic.ca and we’ll be happy to share with Team Canada Olympians. There will be a number of perks and fun opportunities to get involved in the Games and to reunite with Team Canada and other Olympians. All of this will be announced right here on the OLY Canada website closer to Tokyo 2020.

    I competed in the 1956 Olympics in javelin. I coached the 3throws for 25 years in the small town of Harris. Sask. I was a high performance coach for javelin in Saskatoon. Was also a certified field referee.
    I am back competing as a Master athlete. I started at age 68. I am now 81 and do all 5 throws. I am ranked second in the world in javelin,hammer ,weight and throws pent, third in discus and fourth in shot. I also coach other Masters and also multi event athletes (university students) in javelin.
