The Lou Marsh Legacy - Honouring Canada's Top Athletes

Canada's Top Athletes

Each link represents the outstanding achievements of the athlete in the year they won the Lou Marsh Memorial Award. Galleries of photos, artefacts, and select videos, help us to learn more about each athlete.

A collection of Toronto Star newspaper articles capture an historic perspective. Take note of varying journalistic styles throughout the years.

Look for the Toronto Star winner's announcement in each exhibit. Often the article contains the names of many other athletes considered that year. They bring to light the depth of exceptional talent present throughout Canadian history, and the challenge the selection committee undertakes annually in making its choice.
