Pan Am ignites the summer

Wheelchair tennis athletes

Canada earned its first-ever Parapan medal in wheelchair tennis at the UTSC Tennis Centre, when Joel Dembe and Philippe Bedard captured bronze in men’s doubles.

This summer, spectators came to our sparkling new Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre and the new UTSC Tennis Centre to watch top athletes compete in the Pan Am & Parapan American Games. Swimmers broke more than 100 Pan Am records, including three world records in the pool at Parapan. The fencing component of the Pan Am modern pentathlon also saw a world record toppled.

Members of the UTSC community were instrumental in making the games a success on campus. Thanks to all the staff, students and faculty who gave their time!
