Today Toronto won their bid to host the 2015 Pan Am Games and Para-Pan Am Games. This is a tremendous boost to slalom in Canada because Toronto will host Whitewater Slalom as an official sport. Mexico City will also host whitewater slalom in 2011 but as a demonstration sport. With Toronto winning the Games, we can hope for a new artificial whitewater centre in the Toronto area!!!
