  • Did Canada miss the Pan Am Games?

    Looking at the medal totals over the weekend, I saw the large lead by the USA followed by Cuba. Canada's total looked anemic. Are they usually this low, or are they attending another world class meet?

    Some of their top athletes were in the Northern Hemisphere Games, while others opted for the Arctic Perimeter Championships.

      I understand their sprinters were at the Himalayan Open. The lanes were a little icy, but with the off-mountain winds, 10000' altitude and downhill track, several got the A qualifer.

          I just wanted to talk about the current state of Canadian Track and Field and it's participation in the Pan Am games.

              I don't know how the track and field medals stack up but the total medals are as follows:
              1. US-population 300 miilion plus-153
              2. Cuba-population unknown but state sponsored sports program-107
              3. Canada-population 30 million plus-68

              I'd say that the totals stack up pretty favourably.

                  Things just got better for Canada! Bronze for Anson Henry in the 100!!!

                  Huh?

                  That's my way of saying Mickey Grimes just came up with an ephedrine positive, so he loses the gold. (that's just a 1-meet suspension substance)

                    Allow me to rephrase the question: did the Pan Am Games miss Canada?

                      MJD..........with Brazil at 175+ million, Argentina at 30+ million and Cuba using the latest East German technology Canada appears more competitive than I thought. It might be interesting to see just the Track and Field medal breakdown to date and compare those totals.

                        Does Grimes DQ also strip the US of the gold in the 4x1?
