Athletics Canada names team for 2015 Panamerican Juniors

Posted 3 years ago

Athletics Canada is proud to name today a roster of 63 athletes to compete at the 2015 Panamerican Junior Championships (18-19 years of age). The competition takes place July 31 to August 2 in Edmonton, Alta.

“The Pan Am Junior Championships are an excellent opportunity for young upcoming athletes. Competing at home against the best from the pan am region in this age group should elevate their performances and provide them with an excellent learning opportunity,” said Canadian Pan Am Juniors Head Coach Les Gramantik.

Canadian medallists at the last edition of the Panamerican Junior Championships included new Canadian record holders Shawn Barber (pole vault) and Andre De Grasse (200m). Overall Canada ranked second in total medal count collecting 19 medals (6 gold, 6 silver, 7 bronze) and third in gold medals. 

This will be the third major event hosted in Edmonton this summer by TrackTown Canada after the Canadian Track and Field Championships and the National Track League’s TrackTown Classic.

Relay teams will be chosen by the coaching staff from the pool of athletes already named to the team.
