The Ultimate Canadian Sports Trivia Book


What Canadian was the first black man to win a world championship in boxing?

Who scored the first regular-season goal in NHL history?

Who is the only Canadian in the Baseball Hall of Fame?

On water, ice, grass, or mud, in the air or on the ground, sports have been a part of Canadian life since before Confederation - even before the invention of hockey.

Canada’s Ultimate Sports Trivia Guy, Edward Zawadzki, has ventured into the far reaches of the nation’s sports history to bring together this dynamic collection of facts and oddities. The Ultimate Canadian Sports Trivia Book will entertain and enlighten sports fans of all eras, and will challenge both the jock-quiz novice and the sports trivia junkie.

What athlete once challenged and beat a horse in an endurance race? What Canadians have won the Boston Marathon? The answers are here in The Ultimate Canadian Sports Trivia Book.


A fun read that's ideal for the trivia nuts, but also goes beyond the usual asked-and-answered questions, providing substantial background to each answer.
