Brian Clark

Brian Clark's ability as a coach at the Saskatchewan grassroots level has led him down some international trails.

He was the Canadian junior coach in a meet against France and England in 1979, Pan-American junior coach in 1978, Pan-American coach in sprints and hurdles in 1980 and Olympic team coach in hurdles for the 1984 Games at Los Angeles.

A school teacher by profession, Clark first taught track and field at Choiceland, later in Saskatoon and served as head coach of the Riversdale Kiwanis Track and Field Club from 1969 until 1989.

He has been events coordinator for hurdles and relays in Saskatchewan for a dozen years.

He has coached at the Western Canada Games in 1979, 1983 and 1987 and at the Canada Games at St. John's, Newfoundland, in 1977, at Sudbury in 1981 and at St. John, N.B. in 1985.

We hope that you have enjoyed reading about some of Saskatchewan's sports heroes.

If you have a photograph of someone or a team listed in Prairie Gold that we do not have a photo for and are willing to donate it, please contact us.

Due to their nature and sometimes ambiguous origin the photographs seen here and those on file at the Local History Room are continuously being updated with new information. Some of this information comes from dedicated research done by Local History staff. However some of the biggest 'breaks' have come from the public... Those that remember the people, places and events in the photo are our biggest informational resource and we ask that if you have any information about the photos to contact the Local History Room at or phone (306) 975-7578.

Come and visit the Local History Room the next time you are at the Frances Morrison Library.

Thank you.
