ONTARIO ATHLETES THE LARGEST REPRESENTATION ON THE CANADIAN PAN AM GAMES TEAM

Friday, July 10, 2015

Canadian Sport Institute Ontario (CSIO) would like to congratulate all of the athletes and coaches named to Team Canada. CSIO would also like to congratulate the 274 Ontario athletes, 27 Ontario coaches and countless support staff representing Canada at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto (as of July 8, 2015). Ontario athletes comprise 38% of the Canadian Pan Am Team, the most of any province or territory!

“Over the past ten years CSIO has been helping our athletes prepare for this Home Games opportunity,” said Debbie Low, CEO of Canadian Sport Institute Ontario. “Seeing so many local athletes on Team Canada is proof that the high performance development system is working, and is something all Ontarians can be proud of.”

Among the Ontarians competing in the Games, almost 50% are from the Greater Toronto area and over 45% of the Ontario athletes named to the team have received sport science and sport medicine services from CSIO. The sport science and sport medicine services include strength and conditioning, nutrition, mental performance, biomechanics and performance analysis, physiology, and athletic therapy, delivered by CSIO’s in-house team of expert practitioners. CSIO works with these and other targeted high performance athletes and coaches to enhance their ability to achieve international podium performances.

Highlighting the Ontario list of athletes competing at the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games are:

  • Rosie MacLennan (King City, ON), 2012 Olympic gold medalist & defending Pan Am Games gold medalist for trampoline
  • Fellow trampolinists, Karen Cockburn (Stouffville, ON), a three time Olympic medalist and Jason Burnett (Nobleton, ON), the 2008 Olympic silver medalist
  • Four-Time Olympic medalist Adam van Koeverden (Oakville), ON and Olympic bronze medalist Mark Oldershaw (Burlington, ON) for canoe/ kayak (sprint)
  • Martha McCabe (Toronto, ON), member of the Canadian Swim Team and Olympic finalist (5th in 200m breaststroke) at the 2012 London Olympic Games
  • Damian Warner (London, ON) competing in the decathlon and Andre De Grasse (Markham, ON) competing in the 100m and 200m races

Ontario athletes join a team of 445 other athletes from across the country, to be the largest team (719 athletes!) to ever represent Canada at a Pan American Games.

CSIO wishes Ontario athletes, coaches, and support staff representing Canada, the best of luck at the Games!
