Barbara Ann Scott was one of our country's finest athletes, a figure skater in the mid to late 1940s who was dominant in the sport, winning the gold at the St. Moritz Olympics, among many other victories and accolades. You can read more about her here.
She was also a local, born and raised here, and though she retired from the sport and took on life in other parts, she often came back to Ottawa and retained a place in the hearts of many. Here at Ottawa's City Hall, a gallery has been set aside, with her story told through text and photography, as well as collecting her memorabilia, including trophies, clothing, awards, and the Olympic gold medal. I have more from here tomorrow.
