Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games

Please follow along as I cover the ‪#‎PANAMdemonium‬ of Toronto’s PAN AM Games in photos. We get lots of coverage of the athletes and the sports but not the planning and infrastructure challenges of hosting the games.

PANAM01. United We Play but security concerns mean the athletes’ village will be closed to the public.

PANAM02. Corktown Common, the new Park in the West Don Lands, will also be closed for the duration of the PAN AM games. I imagine this will provide the athletes with a place to chill out.20150625_8905

PANAM03. Although not beautiful, these temporary athletes’ village structures are cost effective and will not leave a legacy of buildings unfit for other purposes.20150625_9027
PANAM04. Toronto 2015 has 1200 vehicles to move officials, organizers, dignitaries and athletes around during the PAN AM Games.
