Biography

William Smith was a sergeant with the Governor General’s Foot Guards when he was selected to represent Canada at the 1908 Summer Olympics. He had the highest individual score among his teammates Charles Crowe, William Eastcott, Harry Kerr, Dugald McInnes, and Bruce Williams in the military rifle team event and helped them take the bronze medal in the event.
