Biography

Fraser SWEATMAN

With partner Audrey Garland, Winnipeg native Fraser Sweatman won a silver medal at the 1935 Canadian Figure Skating Championships behind Stewart Reburn and Louise Bertram, but ahead of long-time champions Bud Wilson and Constance Wilson-Samuel. It was Sweatman and Garland’s first appearance at a national tournament. The duo then headed to the 1936 Winter Olympics, where they placed 12th in a field of 18 in the mixed pairs event. Sweatman was also a talented dancer off the ice, finding moderate success at local waltzing competitions in Manitoba. Two years after his Olympic appearance he moved to Toronto to begin a business career and, in 1947, entered the medical supply industry, seeking to improve the inadequate equipment used by anesthesiologists in the post-World War II era. After joining Ohio Medical in 1954, he became one of the most prominent figures in the business in North America by developing higher quality machines and safer practices, eventually running his own company: Fraser Sweatman Inc.
