Remembering Tokyo 1964

A glimpse at Markham’s Olympic memories

July 2021 – Local Team Canada athletes were ready to take on Tokyo in the 2020 Olympic Games.  The community was ready to show support as the athletes took the world stage.

Many got into the Olympic spirit and felt the hometown pride when they tuned in to Remembering Tokyo 1964.  This was an intimate conversation with Markham Olympic Silver Medalist Bill Crothers (Tokyo 1964) and Order of Canada Journalist and news anchor Lloyd Robertson whose first overseas assignment was the Tokyo 1964 Olympic Games.
