Allan Maki has been writing on sports in Western Canada and around the world since 1979. During that time, he has chronicled Stanley Cup finals and Grey Cups, Summer and Winter Olympics, the 1980 Miracle on Ice, the 1989 Super Bowl riot, the 1989 earthquake World Series and hockey-playing bears from the Russian circus.
Allan is a multiple National Newspaper Award finalist and was named 2001 Sportswriter of the Year. He has appeared on dozens of television and radio shows, authored Pro Football's Greatest Stars and is a member of the Football Reporters of Canada Hall of Fame.
He is also the only Canadian sports writer to be interviewed on television by Brian Williams (of TSN) and Brian Williams (then of MSNBC). It is a distinction that could stand for some time.
