Congrats to Natasha Wodak and Rachel Cliff who had a brilliant race to win gold and bronze respectively. Cliff helped pace Wodak to a Pan Am Record (31:55.17). Congrats!

    Nice 10ks by Natasha and Rachel. Great day 1 in Decathlon, with Damian and Pierce 1 & 2.
    Our sprinters are not looking very sharp. Looking forward to the complete schedule in athletics.

    Both had made the Pan-Am standard but were not selected. Taylor wasn't because he was ranked third in Canada (only 2 per country max can go); as for Caroline, no idea why she was left off the team - she was the only Canadian triple jumper to make standard (and has been improving enormously over the past few years).

    Pierce Lepage is about to be bitten by his 1,500m weakness. He also had a very weak discus today. On the other hand, Damian is very strong in the 1,500m.

    Reading the criteria helps. Only 45 on the team and selected based on world ranking.

    if that were the really the case, a number of our sprinters SHOULD NOT be on the team. Reeks of favouritism. Before the country of two per event, Caroline was ranked 19th in the America’s. So she should have made the team.

    Try not being condescending.

    The primary ranking method to establish the 45 spots was the athlete's IAAF ranking. Ranking in the Americas was not considered. Those on the team went down to about an IAAF ranking of 33 or so. Currently Caroline has an IAAF rank of about 60 (she may have been higher at the time of selection in June). Current women's triple jump with an IAAF rank of 33 is 14.10. So it looks to me that the selection criteria were followed and no favourtsim. Even the addition of relay runner spots was based on the team performance according to the IAAF rankings for rely teams.

    We can bring the sprinters because of the relay team, which is ranked quite high in the world ranking.

    It’s great to see Natasha get the recognition she has long deserved from the members of this forum. She will go down in history as one of the best distance runners Canada has produced after Lynn Kanuka who is her coach. Hmmm, coincidence?

    Yes, that's exactly right re: Athletics Canada's methodology and it's set it out rather transparently and succinctly on the AC website. Go to this link: https://athletics.ca/tracking-lists/?id=38 and under the title 2019 PAN AMERICAN GAMES - SELECTION CRITERIA there's a link to a PDF titled Pan Am Ranking list - June 18. Click on the PDF and you'll see the ranking list AC used to select the Pan Ams team.

    I would say she is in her prime at this age with respect to the 10000m event
