Gymnastics, one of the most popular sports at the Pan Am and Olympic Games, will take place at the historic arena at Exhibition Place known as the Toronto Coliseum at Games time — one of five competition venues that make up CIBC Pan Am Park on the Exhibition Place grounds.
For almost 100 years, the coliseum has presented professional sports, iconic concerts and some of Toronto’s favourite annual family events. In the summer of 2015, the venue will be transformed to host athletes from the Americas and Caribbean as they compete in all three disciplines of gymnastics: artistic, rhythmic and trampoline.
Gymnastics boasts some of the best all-around athletes who push the boundaries of physical control, demonstrating feats of precision, balance, strength, flexibility, agility, speed and artistry. Spectators will witness 176 male and female athletes perform riveting routines over nine pressure-filled days of competition. A hopeful hometown favourite to watch will be Rosie MacLennan, the reigning Olympic champion and Pan American Games champion in the individual trampoline event.
