But the hockey series was more than just that final game. In the game's last seconds, their hero Paul Henderson scored an epoch-making goal.
The Labrador duck is long gone and the wild Vancouver Island marmot is struggling to bounce back, but the whooping crane, the swift fox and the bison are actually making comebacks.With more than 30 species already gone and over 400 species of plants and animals at risk, Canada is starting to get serious about protecting its endangered species. fledgling stockbroker Dursley Stott nervously settled into his starting blocks on the red shale track at Cardiff Arms Park, Wales, on July 17, 1958, for a heat of the 100 yards, it was the beginning of the Isle of Man’s long and enduring relationship with what are now known as the Commonwealth Games.A dream had turned into reality for Curwen Clague, the editor of the Isle of Man Examiner and the founding father of International Cycling Week.It really was a case of one small step for Dursley, one giant leap for Mann.And when the ungainly Stuart Slack took a surprise bronze medal in the 120-mile cycling road race on the final day of the Games, Curwen's determination to see the Island's finest pitted against what amounted to some of the finest athletes in world sport had been truly vindicated.
Four years previously an early BBC television spectacular had allowed Curwen, who passionately identified with sporting excellence, to witness the opening ceremony of the fifth British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Vancouver, Canada.
One lone entrant on the flickering black and white screen caught his steely eye.
It was the figure of sprinter Thomas Robinson, proudly marching behind a placard bearing the name of the Bahamas and introducing his country into the Games fraternity.
It sparked the notion in Curwen's mind that the Isle of Man could and should be part of the greater sporting stage.
His inspiration had been further spurred by the performances of legendary Manx distance runner Bill Kelly, and he asked himself the question: why had the opportunity been missed to gain entry into the Games for Kelly?
He put theory to the test and the when the Games opened in Wales, 10 Manxmen, including Kelly, took their place in the Commonwealth sporting arena for the first time.
