    S1E11: Interview with Debbie Chan, Daughter of a Forgotten Chinese Canadian Olympian Chun Hon Chan, Rewriting Canadian History & Finding Your Way to Shine

    S1E11: Interview with Debbie Chan, Daughter of a Forgotten Chinese Canadian Olympian Chun Hon Chan, Rewriting Canadian History & Finding Your Way to Shine

    *In this episode we rewrite a missing piece of Canadian Olympic History!* "Sound Mind. Sound Body." This was the late Chun Hon Chan. A Chinese Canadian immigrant who arrived in Montreal, Canada at the age of 19 with little money, he took whatever jobs he could, cleaning bathrooms in restaurants. Years later, learning the business, he'd become a restaurant owner himself, get married, raise a family, and then one day, become an unlikely but fully deserving and pioneering competitor in the Olympics, representing Canada in the 1968 & 1972 Summer Olympics in weightlifting. Chan set five Canadian weightlifting records, breaking stereotypes and barriers placed in his way. This is my interview with his daughter, Debbie Chan, who shines bright in her family's tribute to her late father. Chun Hon Chan is a Canadian who hasn't been recognized yet, but he was the FIRST Chinese-Canadian to represent Canada in the Olympics in mens weightlifting, and the First Chinese Canadian to represent Canada in the Olympics (I did some digging)!  This podcast is all about bringing to light a piece of Canadian history that must not be forgotten and something more...because this is not just a Montreal story about loving life and living it to the fullest. It's a Canadian story in being welcomed into a nation, a sport, and community without racial biased. It is a fathers story, a family's story, and also an underdog story in unwavering determination, despite all odds.  But ultimately this is a human story which proves, the improbable is possible. This is a story about setting big audacious goals, staying true to yourself, and finding a way to shine.
