GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Nov. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - As the IV Parapan American
Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, officially come to an end, I would like
to congratulate all of our Canadian competitors, as well as all the
coaches, officials, and everyone who helped support Team Canada over
the last two weeks.
Our athletes demonstrated skill and determination, and many of their
outstanding performances resulted in spectacular podium finishes. Their
combined efforts allowed Canada to achieve a 5th place ranking in the final standings. This is a wonderful
accomplishment of which we all can be proud.
I would like to congratulate all our athletes on their tremendous
performances. You have made us proud and inspired us with your passion
and dedication to your sport.
We look forward to our opportunity to host the Americas four years from
now. I invite Canadians to join us in 2015, when Canada hosts the
XVII Pan American and the V Parapan American Games in Toronto.
