Daniel Igali

Lesson description

Daniel Igali’s inspiring story was first profiled in 2008. Daniel had fled the violence of his home country of Nigeria after the 1994 Commonwealth Games and was warmly welcomed by Canadians. He found a home that embraced him as one of their own, and his gratitude was never more evident as his victory celebration after winning a gold medal in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. He danced around the flag and kissed it repeatedly.
