During his extraordinary career as an athlete, a health and physical fitness expert, and a media personality, but primarily as a coach, millions of Canadians swore by Lloyd Percival because he was a coach like no other coach Canada has ever seen. He not only instructed individual athletes and teams; he coached the coaches, and he shared his expertise with an entire nation. He did it personally, and he did it through print, radio, and television. For decades a household name from coast to coast, Percival was one of the most successful and influential figures in Canadian sport during the era of profound change following WWII. He became a popular hero because he loved to speak his mind and the bane of the establishment because he insisted upon it.
