I was privileged to be coached by Pat Cole as a member of the Hamilton Olympic Club. Not only did she coach to enhance our track & field performances, she lead by example. Only upon reflection in my thirties did I come to fully appreciate the life lessons Pat taught: teamwork: respect for all persons, a quiet dignity.
