An article about the Oakville Legion Track and Field Club that appeared in last Wednesday's edition of the Beaver contained inaccurate information. Legion coach Ted Neptune was a member of the Canadian national team that boycotted the 1980 Olympic Summer Games in Moscow in protest of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. The Beaver regrets the error.
