Athlete (1989)

Track and Field

Stan Glover Stan is one of the few men in Saskatoon to go to the Olympic Games as a member of the track and field team. He helped Canada gain a bronze medal in the 4 x 400 metre relay at the Amsterdam Games in 1928. Stan also competed in the first ever British Empire Games in 1930, helping Canada gain a silver medal in the mile relay.

His specialty was the 440 yards, an event that won him acclaim in high school, the Saskatchewan Open, the Western Universities meet and the Canadian Senior Championships. Stan was also an excellent rifleman, leading the Nutana Rifle Marksmen team to victory at the Dominion Championships in 1924. Stan's curling prowess should also be noted. Skipping his rink from Nutana, his foursome won the Saskatchewan title in 1943 but because of the war, no Brier was held.

Stan Glover died suddenly of a heart attack in 1964. His memory however, will live on with this induction into the Saskatoon Hall of Fame.
