Family, friends & mentors lift water polo canucks after devastating loss

Created On: August 8, 2015
It was a defeat of the most crushing variety. A one-goal loss to arch-rival USA in front of a passionate home crowd. The U.S. had qualified for the Olympics, and the Canadians’ best chance to get to Rio was gone.

Created On: August 8, 2015
The final outcome wasn’t pretty – 13-4 in favour of USA – but a loud group of flag-waving fans clad in red from turban to toe continued cheering from the section of stands next to the Canadian goal, just as they had throughout the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games women’s water polo tournament.

Just a sliver from gold, slalomer still savours silver

Updated On: August 8, 2015
A tiny brush of one gate was all that separated whitewater paddler Cam Smedley from a Pan Am Games gold medal – the two-second penalty imposed boosting USA’s Casey Eichfeld ahead for 1st – but the fastest man down the men’s C-1 course wasn’t about to complain about his slalom silver at home.

The players broke their huddle near the dugout with one giant “Canada!” cheer and Ottawa resident Jenn Yee sprinted to her second base position at about the same speed she’d just run to home plate, so energized was she by the roar of the sold-out crowd at the President’s Choice Ajax Pan Am Ballpark and the opportunity that lay ahead.

Updated On: August 8, 2015
Canadian swimmers came up with a handsome medal haul at the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games – finishing five behind USA with 27 in total for 2nd overall – and while Ottawa’s Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson certainly enjoyed the experience, she also wishes she could have contributed a bit more to the count.

Lions decathlete soaks in Pan Am experience

Updated On: August 8, 2015
Patrick Arbour was the last man off the track. The York University athletics stadium was largely empty by then, but the Ottawa Lions decathlete was still there at the end, shaking hands with officials and volunteers after completing his two-day competition.

Rising Lions shot put star earns Pan Am silver

Updated On: August 8, 2015
At the time, Tim Nedow’s top throw in the men’s shotput competition would have left him in the uncomfortable 4th-place position. But just as Canadian steeplechasers were called up to collect their gold and silver medals just a few steps away, the Ottawa Lions athlete unleashed his best effort of the day to vault into podium position himself, finishing 2nd to only O’Dayne Richards of Jamaica, the new Pan Am Games record holder.
