Bruce Elliott has won four major North American titles and came very close to winning a fifth. Elliott won the 1948 and 1951 Chicago Trophy (which is now the Reisinger) and the 1964 and 1965 Spingold. He came second in the Life Master Pairs in 1964 in the Summer Nationals held in Toronto. Elliott twice represented Canada in the World Team Olympiad, in Torino, Italy in 1960, coming seventh, and in Deauville, France in 1968, bringing home the bronze medal.
Bruce Elliott was born in 1922 and has lived all his life in the Toronto area. His partnership with Percy Sheardown was one of the best in North America in the 1950s and 60s and most of his major successes, with the exception of the 1948 Chicago, came in partnership with Shorty.
