Uncommon Olympic Order certificate, 9 x 14, issued to Robert F.

Osborne." Signed at the conclusion by International Olympic Committee President Juan Antonio Samaranch. In very good to fine condition, with a small tear to right edge and a crease to upper portion. Created in 1975, the Olympic Order is the highest accolade of the Olympic Movement and is awarded for particularly distinguished contributions to the Olympic Movement, with grades consisting of gold, silver, or bronze. Canada's Robert Osborne was one of 31 honored with a silver citation in 1983. Osborne was a University of British Columbia athlete, coach, and a founder of UBC’s School of Physical Education.

In 1936, Osborne played on the Canadian Olympic basketball team that earned a silver medal in the Berlin Olympics.
