Swimming

This jacket was part of the uniform for the 1980 Canadian Olympic Swim Team. Thomson was selected as the Captain of the entire Canadian team, however; the boycott of the Moscow Olympics prevented Canada’s participation therein.

Thompson reflects, “I’m proud to have earned this uniform, wish it would have gotten more use!”
