Canada’s Jordan Belchos won the bronze medal in the men’s 10km points race at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games on Monday July 13th. Belchos collected the bronze medal in dramatic fashion, breaking away from the pack in the second half of the race, collecting second-place points while chasing down Mexico’s Mike Paez, the eventual Gold medalist in this distance.
Belchos, who started his skating career with the Toronto Inline Skating Club in 2002 and eventually focused on long track speed skating, collecting World Cup medals and recently setting the Canadian 10km record this past March, was cheered on by his parents, friends, and the local skating community.
