1924 Paris

Games of the VIII Olympiad

At the 1924 Games, the Olympic motto, “Citius, Altius, Fortius” (Faster, Higher, Stronger) was introduced, as was the Closing Ceremony ritual of raising three flags: the flag of the International Olympic Committee, the flag of the host nation and the flag of the next host nation. It was also the first time that the athletes were accommodated in a sort of Olympic Village, a group of wood cabins.

Canada came up empty-handed in gold medals for the first time in Olympic history, but the lining was silver and bronze. The rowing team captured silver in men’s eights and coxless fours, and shooters won the silver medal in clay pigeon team. Rounding out the total medal tally of four was 67 kg boxer Douglas Lewis with a bronze. Seventy-three athletes represented Canada at these Games.
