Olympic rider Norman Elder passed away 

Norman Elder, who rode twice for Canada in the Olympic Games, died at the end of last year, aged 64. The younger brother of six-time Olympian Jimmy Elder competed in the Olympic Three-Day Events of 1960 in Rome, and in 1968 in Mexico City. Norman Elder also won three medals at two Pan American Games: in 1959 he was third individually on Prince Maple, and won team gold; in 1967 he finished second individually, riding Ranae Doe.

Elder then became an adventurer and carried out expeditions to the Amazon, the Congo, Papua New Guinea, the Arctic and Madagascar. He wrote several books about his exploits.
