I was honored by the University of Toronto...

the other day, by inducted into U of T Sports Hall of Fame.

This was quite a surprise, since the reason given for this honor were my fencing results in my rookie year, 1962/63. I was the intercollegiate champion in saber that school year.

During the induction ceremony I had the privilege of meeting former truly great champions, olympic medallists and the Dean of the Faculty of Physical Education, Bruce Kidd, a Canadian sport icon. He presented me with the certificate.

It was required of the inductees to say a few words at the time and there is a YouTube video here you might like to watch, it's only 3 minutes.
