Goulding, who excelled in both track and field and walking, participated in over 300 races at distances from 1-40 miles. He competed for Canada at the 1908 Olympics in London, England, and placed 19th in the marathon and 4th in the walk. In 1912, he also participated in the Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden. He entered the 10,000 metre race and took the lead, winning by eighty yards in record time. Goulding died in 1966, at the age of 80.

He had a summer retirement residence near Curtis Point on Rice Lake, Ontario, a few cottages down from my family's. As a child, I knew him and spoke to him often. A very decent gentleman. I'm glad to have known him. Rest in peace George.
