August 21, 2013, OTTAWA (ISN) – The 2013 Pan American Junior Championships begin Friday in Medellin, Columbia featuring a Canadian contingent of 51 athletes. For many of these athletes the three day competition will be their first taste of international competition and their first opportunity to take on some of the best in the world with an eye on a podium finish.

Headlining the team are two athletes who just finished competing in Moscow, Russia at the 2013 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championship. Shawnacy Barber of Toronto, Ont., competed in Moscow in the men’s pole vault while Khamica Bingham of Brampton, Ont., served as anchor on the women’s 4×100-metres relay team that set a new Canadian Record and finished sixth in the world.

“Our country’s best junior-aged athletes and their coaches have been saddled with a great challenge – to deliver the best performance of the year at a competition that has changed dates and location since annual plans were first set last September,” comments team head coach Laurier Primeau. “All countries competing at the championship face the same reality, thus our medal expectation hasn’t changed. We will consider it a job well done if we can improve on our tally of two years ago.” At the last edition of this event in 2011 Canada came away with 13 medals; six silver and seven bronze.
