1999 Pan Am Games - The University of Manitoba

Donovan Bailey
Olympic Gold Medallist Donovan Bailey will compete in the 1999 Pan American Games. Bailey, the fastest man in the world, won the gold medal with a time of 9.84, setting a new world record, for the Men's 100 Metre Final at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics.

"It is always very special to compete for one's country, especially on home turf", said Bailey. "I'm really looking forward to returning to Winnipeg in '99 and going for gold in competition with some of the best athletes from the Americas."

'99 Games Continue the Legacy

In 1967, Winnipeg hosted the Pan Am Games. Then, as now, The University of Manitoba played an integral part in hosting the Games. In 1999, the U of M is poised to repeat its successful role. As site of three sports venues and the largest of the three main athletes' villages, the Fort Garry campus will be alive with activity as the Americas come to play.
