Evan Dunfee has received his just due.
Five years after capturing the hearts of Canadians everywhere for his exemplary show of sportsmanship at the 2016 Rio Olympics—conceding the bronze medal rather than challenging the result due to possible interference—Richmond's Dunfee has reached the podium in the gruelling men's 50-kilometre race walk at this summer's Games in Sapporo, Japan.
Despite enormous heat and humidity, Dunfee stayed focused and placed third.
