A passion for sports


news2“I was always interested in athleticism,” says Glenroy. “I did anything and everything.” That included intramural soccer, volleyball and basketball. But track and field was the sport that stuck. “It was one of those sports where you could test yourself: how high you could jump, how far you could jump, how fast you could run, how far you could throw… I loved everything about being an athlete and trying to excel and trying to test myself against others.”

Glenroy’s first passion in track and field was the long jump. He competed in the event at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul before turning his focus to sprinting. But he always continued to challenge himself through other sports, competing at the 1994 Winter Olympics in bobsled, and accepting an invitation to try out for the San Francisco 49ers in April 1996. His professional football career was nipped in the bud when he split his hand open while receiving a pass during a drill. Fortunately for Canada, that freed Glenroy up to compete on the 4 x 100m relay team in Atlanta later that year.
