With 942 days to go until the Opening Ceremonies of the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, delegates from the Canadian Olympic Committee on Tuesday embarked on the first official site visit to be conducted by a National Olympic Committee.  The delegation, which includes the COC’s President, Marcel Aubut, Chief Executive Officer and Secretary General Christopher R. Overholt, and Chief Sport Officer Caroline Assalian, was given the first in-depth tour of the facilities which will host the most outstanding athletes in the Americas two and a half years from now.

“Toronto 2015 is a priority for us at the Canadian Olympic Committee and for the entire Canadian Sport Community,” said Aubut. “The visit over the next few days is about much more than viewing the impressive progress being made of the facilities to date; it is about strengthening relationships, as well as ensuring that we are completely equipped with the information necessary to deliver a fully-prepared, world-class team of athletes, coaches and support staff for Canada’s next home Games.”

During the tour of construction, as well as future sites, the COC delegates learned that building continues to progress on schedule and on budget, and Facilities for Toronto 2015 will be situated across the GTA, including a state-of-the-art cycling Velodrome in Milton, Ontario, a two-pitch field hockey centre at the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus, as well as a brand new Athletics stadium to be located at York University Campus.
