Boy sent letter, medal to Canadian Mens Relay Team to lift their spirits

Boy who sent letter, medal to Canadian mens relay team wanted to lift their spirits

The Province: A Newfoundland boy who sent a letter and his soccer medal to the Canadian men’s 4X100 relay team says he simply wanted to boost their spirits after they were disqualified from an Olympic bronze medal.

In his letter, the 10-year-old Paradise boy said it wasn’t right when the team lost its bronze medal for a lane violation. He included with his letter a Timbits soccer medal that he won a few years ago.

I’m sorry…I have something in my eye…I’ll be right back…. (Thanks to @SlyM for the story!)
