Canada Clinches Pan Ams Team Show Jumping Gold By A Single Second, U.S. Bronze

Caledon, Ontario—July 23

As the Canadian riders stood by the ring watching Argentina’s José Maria Larocca Jr. canter down the last line, Ian Millar was counting the seconds. If Larocca had a single time penalty, Canada was guaranteed gold. If he didn’t, the two teams were headed for a jump-off. 

“We were thinking, ‘He’s going to make the time. No, he’s not going to make the time.’ And it was so close. It came down to a fraction of a second for a gold medal,” said Ian Millar.

Mono, Ontario—July 18

If you want to know how a cross-country day’s gone for the team, take a look at U.S. Chef d’Equipe David O’Connor. 

“He’s looking a little happier than the last time I was on a team,” said Boyd Martin. “In Normandy [where the U.S. team was eliminated on cross-country], he looked ready to neck himself.
