A boy from Newfoundland is trying to make the Canadian men’s 4×100 metre relay team feel a little better about their devastating disqualification at London 2012 that cost them a bronze medal.

Elijah Porter, 10, wrote to the team and sent them his own Timbits hockey medal to take its place.

Sprinter Justyn Warner tweeted a picture of the medal and handwritten letter on Monday. Read letter here.

The letter states: “We’re Canadians. We persevere. We create better lives for each other. We didn’t lose the War of 1812. I hope you like the medal.”
