Canada sets new national record for Pan Am medals
Glaesser, Beveridge win gold, bronze to break Canadian record set in 1999
The Toronto Pan Am Games are Canada's most successful Games in the history of the event.
Cyclists Jasmin Glaesser and Allison Beveridge won a gold and bronze, respectively, in the women's road race on Saturday afternoon, giving Canada medals number 196 and 197.
The 197th medal set a new Canadian record for performance at the Pan Am Games, eclipsing the previous record set at the 1999 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg.
"This is an outstanding achievement and reflects the hard work of our athletes, coaches and National Sport Federations," Canadian Olympic Committee head Marcel Aubut said in a statement ."Congratulations to Team Canada – you have made your country so proud and have inspired future generations of Canadian athletes."
Canada's 77 gold medals is a national record, smashing the previous best of 64, which was also set in Winnipeg.
The Americans top this year's medal chart.
