  6. Varsity Centre to Host Festival of Excellence http://www.olympic.ca/en/news/varsity-cent...ellence/Toronto, May 26, 2009 Credit: Jeff Jurmain Usain Bolt, Priscilla Lopes-Schliep, Perdita Felicien, Others Set To Blast Off One of the biggest phenoms ever to emerge from an Olympic Games is set to make his mark on the blue track of the University of Toronto's Varsity Centre on June 11. While the world waits to see just how fast Usain Bolt can run, he will participate in the 100 metres as the star attraction of the "Festival of Excellence." Will Bolt set another world record on Canadian soil?
  7. http://www.torontosun.com/sports/otherspor...366756-sun.html A jolt of Bolt Huge demand expected for Festival By LANCE HORNBY, SUN MEDIA In about 10 seconds -- hopefully less if your name is Usain Bolt -- the reputation of Varsity Stadium and the City of Toronto as a top track and field venue could get a boost. Not since the 1980s has the University of Toronto's premier outdoor athletic facility been mentioned in the same breath as world-class performances. But with the rebuilt stadium and 100-metre champion Bolt headlining the Festival Of Excellence on June 11, Varsity will be back on t
  8. Jim Jones the Pan Am Games gets zero coverage in North America. Its has been like that for years now, having the Pan Am Games in Toronto will change that.
  9. Tokyo has a strong technical bid and Rio 2016 is coming on strong. Either bid could win.
  10. The Pan Am Games were already staged in South America in 2007. I believe that the Pan Am Sports Committee is looking is looking for a change. They see Toronto as an opportunity to transform the Pan Am Games.
  11. People get riled up when I question the choice of David Peterson and Jagodta Pike as bid organizers. Everyone says the they have experience, but what do you do with that experience? Both David Peterson and Jagodta Pike should should focus on two things Lobbying and Public awareness. Hardly anyone knows Toronto is bidding for the 2015 Pan Am Games and the blame lays on David Peterson and Jagodta Pike. Also where is the lobbying strategy? Toronto 2015 should be out in every country in the Americas, promoting this bid, making friendships, bonding, connecting, promoting etc. Focusing on the b
  12. David Peterson was apart of the 1996 and 2008 Olympic Bids both lost. Jagodta Pike was apart of the 2010 and 2014 Common Wealth both lost. The people losers who do not know how to win a bid. They are doing nothing different then in the past.
