Leach, Chris '60 (LSG) - Rowing
One of our Lower School graduates, Chris played hockey, rugby and cricket at the south end of campus and also won three silver medals in boxing—which, he points out good-naturedly, are not that good in boxing!

After leaving Ridley, Chris found great success as an oarsman and rowed in two Olympic games in Rome and Tokyo. He is the founder of the Trent University Rowing Club and has been recognized by Rowing Canada for his efforts in building, coaching and competing in Canadian Rowing.
