In 1959, young sprinter Harry Jerome was breaking records at local Vancouver track meets. Olympics-bound, he was Canada’s most promising track and field star. By 1962, after suffering a gruesome leg injury, there was every reason to think that his racing days were over. But Jerome was not just a champion on the track; he was doubly determined off it. This is the triumphant and compelling story of what Jerome's own coach called "the greatest comeback in track and field history."
