Ontario Provincial Police are investigating after a thief stole at least 13 medals and countless Olympic memorabilia from a Canadian gymnast.
Police say they were notified on July 4 about the theft from a home in the Township of Chatsworth, Ont.
Among the items stolen are several Canadian national championship medals for gymnastics, other international competition medals, and some for Ontario provincial championship awards.
Police say the thief also took memorabilia, including national and Olympic Gymnastics team clothing and uniforms for Team Canada, framed enlargements of the 1992 Olympics, and national souvenirs from several international competitions between 1982 to 1993, among other items taken.
Police would not confirm whether the victim was a former Team Canada gymnastics team member but did confirm all of the items taken were for gymnastics and belonged to the person whose home they were stolen from.
