TORONTO, September 13. ONE of the greatest swimmers in Canadian history will be featured in an upcoming movie directed by Jerry Ciccoritti. Victor Davis, who captured the gold medal in the 200-meter breaststroke at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, will be the focus of a film scheduled to be released in March 2007.
Killed by a hit-and-run driver in 1989, Davis established a world record in the 200 breast on three occasions, including a clocking of 2:13.34 . In the movie, which will air on CBC, Mark Lutz will play the role of Davis. Lutz was a former age-group standout who qualified for the Canadian Olympic Trials, according to an article by Randy Starkman in the Toronto Star.
