GUADALAJARA – Angela Whyte of Edmonton, Alta., won Canada’s third athletics (track and field) medal at the XVI Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. In the women’s 100-metre hurdles Whyte crossed the finish line in 13.09 seconds securing the silver medal. “It was not my best race. But I’m happy. I wanted to win a medal for the team and for my country”. Whyte adds, “I’m glad I came here to see a world event, to see where I sit and to see what I need to do for next year.”

Christie Gordon of Edmonton, Alta., also lined up in the 100-metre hurdles final where she placed seventh in 13.48 seconds.

Dontae Richards-Kwok of Mississauga, Ont., advanced through round 1 of the men’s 200-metres crossing the line in fourth place with a time of 21.26 seconds. Richards-Kwok later finished seventh in his semi final heat with a time 21.11 seconds and did not advance to the final. “The race was alright; I think I executed well.
