Canada's first Olympic gold medallist couldn't walk until he was ten, and became the greatest runner of his generation.

Who was the first Canadian to Win an Olympic Gold Medal? When Mark Hebscher was asked this simple trivia question, he had no idea that it would lead him on a two year odyssey, researching a man he had never heard of.

Paralyzed as a child and told he would never walk again, George Washington Orton persevered, eventually becoming the greatest distance runner of his generation, a world-class hockey player, and a brilliant scholar. A sports pioneer, Orton came up with the idea of numbered football jerseys and introduced ice hockey to Philadelphia. Orton's 1900 Paris Olympic medals were credited to the United States for seven decades before the mistake was uncovered and rectified. Yet he is virtually unknown in Canada. Finally, his story is being told.

TESTIMONIALS

“I liked that you mixed in other sports, like Jack Dempsey boxing and Man 'O War and horse raciing. That Orton was some kind of guy. Too bad he didn't spend more time in Canada or we'd all know about him. Great work, Mark. I really enjoyed your book" - Don Cherry. Hockey Night In Canada

“Hebsy, always a fount of sports knowledge and trivia, sets the record straight on a great Canadian athlete long overlooked or forgotten altogether. An entertaining and informative read. Mark's high energy personality and unbirdled love for sport shine through on every page." - Rob Baker. Guitarist, "The Tragically Hip"

“Mark Hebscher has brought life to George Washington Orton for all of us to enjoy with his book The Greatest Athlete (You've Never Heard Of). Well, we have now. Mark's research and writing skills combined with his finding so many historic pictures capture a person and a time that had escaped us. A job well done." - Jerry Howarth. Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster.

“Mark, the book is fantastic, as are your reflections within" - Ron MacLean. Hockey Night In Canada
