Three Canadian Athletes Awarded New Medals From TORONTO 2015 Following Doping Infractions by International Athletes

Thursday, November 26, 2015

The Canadian Olympic Committee, Athletics Canada and Swimming Canada are happy to announce that three Team Canada athletes are being awarded silver and bronze medals after international athletes were disqualified due to doping infractions.

Swimmer Zack Chetrat is upgraded from a bronze medal to silver in the men’s 200m butterfly, while his teammate Alec Page takes the bronze in the same event. Distance runner Rachel Hannah is awarded the bronze medal in women’s marathon.

The Canadian Olympic Committee was informed of the redistribution of medals by the Pan American Sports Organization after the conclusion of the anti-doping process. That brings Canada’s final tally of medals at the Pan American Games to an all-time Canadian record of 219 medals: 78 gold, 70 silver and 71 bronze.

The medals will be awarded to the three athletes during ceremonies organized by their respective national sport federations.
