Plus, the Jerome Classic

The Jerome Classic in Vancouver, BC, began in 1964 titled the ‘The International Olympic Preview’ as a build-up and preview of the Tokyo Olympics. Harry Jerome used the event for a triumphant comeback on route to a Bronze medal in the 100 metres for Canada at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. The event was later named the ‘Achilles Meet‘. In 2024, under new partnership with non-profit RUNVAN and the Achilles International Track and Field Society, the event was renamed to ‘The Jerome Classic‘.
