2. ROSIEMACLENNANCompeting on home soil at an international multi-sport Games is arare opportunity for any athlete, and its something Ive dreamed of myentire athletic career.

I can tell you,Team Canada is already preparing so that when our moment comes,well be ready.The Pan Am Games have a special place in my heart. After winning silverfor Canada at the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2007, I went on to win goldat the Guadalajara Games in 2011. Standing on the podium and hearingO Canada were incredibly emotional and proud moments for me. It iswhat athletes strive for, to live our dream and make our country proud.I can only imagine what it will be like to hear the roar of a passionatehome crowd as well.The success of previous Games held in Canada has shown athletesthat the passion, cheers and support from the crowd can mean thedifference between silver and gold. I know that all the athletes, especiallyTeam Canada, are in for the experience of a lifetime, as are all of thosewho come out to cheer us on!With 36 sports, including 52 disciplines, theres something for everyone. I hopethat all the athletes competing will be able to walk into the venues before theircompetition and see the stands filled with enthusiastic fans of all ages.On behalf of all the athletes hoping to compete at the Games, we thankyou for your support.

Theymust hold this position from the time their foot first impactsthe ground until the supporting leg passes below the body. Toincrease their pace while meeting this standard, athletes swiveland tilt their hips to lengthen their strides.Throughout the 20-kilometre races for women and 20- and50-kilometre races for men, officials line the course, watchingevery athlete for breaks in form.
