Varsity Stadium is at the heart of the University of Toronto campus and home to many athletic teams.
Since 1911, it has hosted professional and international championships in athletics, soccer, Canadian football and even a Montreal 1976 Olympic Games soccer match. In the summer of 2015, it will welcome a new sport into its domain as the home of archery for both the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.
Concentration, focus, strength and a steady hand are required as arrows reach speeds up to 225 kilometres an hour in their path toward the 12-centimetre ring in the centre of the target.
Sixty-four male and female athletes, in four individual and team events, will take aim over five days of Pan Am Games competition.
This historic sport will return to Varsity Stadium for three days during the Parapan Am Games. Thirty athletes across three classifications will compete in eight medal events.
