Water-skier George Athans, Jr. was born in Kelowna, B.C. The 10-time Canadian champion became the first non-American skier to win the U.S. Masters title in 1973, and was awarded the Order of Canada in 1974. Next time you’re strapping on the ol’ planks at the cottage, get past the fear by telling yourself that you’ve got a shot at the Order of Canada!
