2008 Summer Olympian, Taylor Milne was born on September 14th 1981 in Callander Ontario. In 2008 this Callander native won the 1,500m middle distance run at the 2008 Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome International Track Classic. The win was accomplished with a very dramatic push from Taylor at the 1,200m point. He was able to surpass another Canadian Olympian, Kevin Sullivan, who just happens to be one of Taylor’s heroes. Not only did Taylor win his event he also had a personal best time of 3:36.00. It was with this time that Taylor qualified for the opportunity to enter the Olympic Trials. To earn a place at the Beijing Olympics Milne would need to finish in the top for at the Windsor Olympic trials. Not only did Taylor make the top four, he won this event too, thus earning himself a spot on the Olympic Team.
