The organizers of Toronto 2015 Pan American Games and the Royal Canadian Mint will have many summer athletes salivating on Tuesday.

That is the day the Games organizers and the Mint will be unveiling the medals that will be around the necks of gold, silver and bronze-winning athletes in Toronto from July 10 to 26.

They’ve been teasing in photo…

And video…

On Tuesday they’ll make the big reveal.

Toronto will host over 6,000 of the best athletes from 41 nations in the Americas and the Caribbean in 36 Pan Am sports. Many of Canada’s sport federations have committed their best athletes to the showcase taking place only a year from the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Reports indicate that tickets have been selling well, but they’ll be put on hold after March 9 for a month. Best to get them now: Pan Am Games Tickets
