Canada's track and field won medals in nearly every event. Ethel Catherwood (The Saskatoon Lily) won a gold medal in high jump, Bobbie Rosenfeld won a silver medal in a dead heat in the 100m and lead the Canadian women two gold in the 400m relay. The Canadian team won 15 medals in outstanding Olympic performance. The six Canadian women won more points then any other national team.
The Group Of Seven included J.E.H MacDonald, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael, A.Y Jackson, Arthur Lismer, Fred Varley, and Lawren Harris. The seven males decided to form a group to protect themselves from negative responses from art critics, other artists, and the public.
