Biography

Harvey Charters and Warren Saker, of Toronto’s Balmy Beach Canoe Club, won the Canadian Championships in the doubles in 1935, earning them spots on the nation’s delegation to the 1936 Summer Olympics. At the Games they first entered the C2-10,000, where they followed the Czechoslovakian duo of Václav Mottl and Zdeněk Škrland the entire race and won the silver medal a comfortable distance ahead of the third-place finishing Austrians Karl Proisl and Rupert Weinstabl. They were tired the following day, but still managed to compete in the C1-1000, where they captured bronze behind the duos of Jan Brzák-Felix and Vladimír Syrovátka of Czechoslovakia and Proisl and Weinstabl. The Olympics were Charters’ only major international tournament, but he continued to compete for many years after the Games, participating in American tournaments well into the late 1940s.
