Golden Anniversary of Nation’s First Gold Medal

Sir Durward Knowles, 96, will be honored later this year, along with his one-man crew in star class sailing from the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. It’s been 50 years since Sir Durward and the late Cecil Cooke sailed to the country’s first Olympic gold medal, and the most esteemed Bahamian remembers it as if it was just yesterday.
