Incredibly sad news to learn of the passing of #Canadian aquatics legend Clifford Barry. He represented @waterpolocanada at the ’72 & ’76 #Olympics, one of @SwimmingCanada most accomplished swim coaches & inducted into the Canadian Swimming Hall of Fame. May he rest in peace.
The @waterpolocanada#waterpolo community has lost another of its icons. Clifford Barry, a double-Olympian, representing Canada at both the 1972 and 1976 Olympic Games has died, at the age of 75 after a brief illness.
