York U candidate for Pan Am track and field venue

July 30, 2010

York University is being considered one of the front-runners to host the track and field competitions for the 2015 Pan American Games after game organizers announced last week they're looking to have these events take place in Toronto instead of Hamilton. York U's associate director of media relations says the institution is open to hosting the track events, but there is currently no facility anywhere near big enough. "We've consistently said that if York can be part of a solution we would be open to talking about it." The University of Toronto will be hosting several Pan Am events in new facilities.
