Biographical history

Louis Rubenstein is one of Canada's most legendary sports figures. In 1890, he became the first World FancySkating Champion at a competition held in Russia. Louis Rubenstein's aptitude for sports extended far beyond skating. He was a venerable proponent of cycling, curling, bowling, and swimming. His love of sports led him to establish the International Skating Union of America and the Amateur Skating Association of Canada. He also organized other fields of amateur sports. He became a civic leader and philanthropist, devoting his energy to underprivileged youth. Louis Rubenstein also served as the President of the Young Men's-Young Women's Hebrew Association.
