Can any other community in the world boast as many Olympians per person as King Township? With a tiny population of well under 25,000, King is the birthplace, training ground, residence or retirement retreat of an astonishing number of world-class athletes. For more than 60 years, athletes with King in their past, present or future have trampolined, run, skated, rowed and – in history-making numbers – ridden at the Olympic games. To celebrate these amazing Olympians, The King Township Historical Society created a colorful four-panel photographic display and informative free brochure. King’s medalists have stories to share and applaud. Rosie MacLennan, for instance, won gold in Women’s Trampoline at London’s 2012 Olympics – Canada’s only gold for the games!
