Varsity Stadium, Toronto Ontario by Artist Illustrator David Crighton Art
This summer has been full of exciting events, festivals, and other goings on in Toronto! Now, we have the upcoming Pan-Am Games in Toronto that kick off on July 10th and run until the 26th. The XVII Pan American Games, is a major international multi-sport event with approximately 6,135 athletes from 41 nations that will participate in 36 sports. The first event, water polo, will be held today three days before the opening of the event.
Many records have been broken with this event thus far with among them 45% of competitors is expected to be women which is the most ever for any multi-sport event. The 2015 Pan American Games, will be the first completely ecologically friendly games, being entirely carbon neutral. And if that wasn’t enough, it will be the largest multi-sport event ever to be held in Canada in terms of the athletes that will be competing. The games will be double the athletes of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
