Biography

A native of Odessa in the Ukraine, Rosenfeld moved to Canada as a child. She was working in a chocolate factory in 1923 when she took up sports and she eventually excelled in track, ice hockey, softball, and basketball. She competed after the 1928 Olympics, but crippling arthritis set in early and she retired from competition in 1933. She continued to stay active in sports as a coach and also wrote a sports column, Sports Reel, for the Toronto Globe & Mail. In 1950 she was named Canada’s Female Athlete of the Half Century, and was also inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.

Personal Bests: 100 – 12.3w (1928); 800 – 2.22.4 (1928).
