Podcast: Recapping the Pan Am Games Men’s Triathlon

Mexico’s Crisanto Grajales outsprinted American Kevin McDowell to take gold on Toronto’s waterfront this morning, while his countryman Irving Perez rounded out the podium to prove that Mexico is a force to be reckoned with on the world scene.

Canadian Andrew Yorke made a gallant effort in the race, running in second place behind Jason Wilson for much of the first three laps of the four-loop run, but would eventually be passed by the surging group and be relegated to seventh, while up-and-coming star Tyler Mislawchuk overcame a broken rib (an injury he sustained last weekend) to hang tough for 10th.
