Findlay Olympian Gets New Custom Cane

A Findlay Olympic hero has a new customized walking cane. After the story of Weldy Olson’s lost or stolen cane made national headlines, the company that made the cane out of a hockey stick said they would replace it at no charge.

Findlay High School hockey PA announcer Rich Fowler says Third Assists Canes found out about what happened and wanted to help. The owner of the company emailed back and promised to deliver a new cane to Olson’s specifications by Wednesday.

Findlay is hosting Springboro Friday night at the Cube. The team plans to recognize Third Assist canes at the game.

Olsen played on the U.S. Olympic hockey teams in 1956 and 1960. He earned silver and gold medals with those teams.
