Ferd Hayward

Harry Ferdinand (Ferd) Hayward (August 21 1911– September 12 1988) was a short and long-distance walker, who in 1952 competed with the Canadian National Team at the Olympics held at Helsinki, Finland. He was born in St. Johns, Newfoundland.

Hayward held the Newfoundland record for one mile, ten mile and twenty mile distance walker. He participated at many North American sporting events where he received the Gold Medal at the United States National Kilometer "Walking Champ" race held at Baltimore.

Hayward was one of the first inductees into the Newfoundland Sports Hall of Fame in April 27, 1974. He was also the first recipient of Newfoundland Athlete of the Year award when it was instituted in 1951. The provincial senior male athlete of the year is given the Ferd Memorial plaque in memory of Hayward.

In 1987 he carried the torch during the preparations for the Calgary Winter Olympics. [http://canadawiki.org/index.php/Great_Canadian_Sports_Stories]
