Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre to Host 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC) Inc. is pleased to announce that it will host the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials, organized by Swimming Canada. The Trials, which will be held in March 2016, mark the first legacy high performance sports event in Toronto that is a result of infrastructure built for the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.

The event brings together several significant partnerships, including the City of Toronto, Toronto Tourism and the University of Toronto Scarborough, where TPASC is located. “This is the first of many future hosting events for high performance athletes and sport in Toronto,” says Professor Ira Jacobs, TPASC Chair and Dean of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Toronto. “We are proud to serve as the venue for Swimming Canada’s Olympic and Paralympic Trials, and to showcase the skills and athleticism of all abilities.”

“The Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials only come around every four years and are without question our premier domestic event,” said Swimming Canada CEO Ahmed El-Awadi. “The Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre will welcome some of the best in the world next year, and we’re honoured to carry on that legacy by showcasing Canada’s best swimmers in this first-class facility.”

The Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre represents the single largest investment ever made in amateur sport development in Canada. Co-owned by the City of Toronto and the University of Toronto Scarborough, TPASC was developed in partnership with the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario. TPASC will be the site of several events for the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, including all aquatics events.

TPASC is the most elite high performance training and competition facility in the country,” says Bob Singleton, Managing Director, Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre. “We’re excited to host this event, and to enhance the city and region of Toronto’s reputation as both a world-class destination and a leader in sporting facilities.”
