Vernot Swims to Silver

Vernot Swims to Silver

August 25, 1920: Swimmer George Vernot wins silver in the 1500m freestyle at the Games of the VII Olympiad in Antwerp. Three days later Vernot added a bronze medal in the 400m freestyle. It would be 88 years before another Canadian would reach the podium in the 1500m freestyle, when Ryan Cochrane won bronze at Beijing 2008.
