Nine Daegu medallists to take centre stage in Guadalajara - Pan American Games PREVIEW

Guadalajara, Mexico - Headed by Brazil’s Fabiana Murer, nine individual World Championships medallists from Daegu 2011 will take centre stage in the athletics tournament of the 16th Pan American Games, starting on Sunday (23) at the brand new 8500-capacity Telmex Stadium in Guadalajara.

Eight days after the opening of the quadrennial event, over 660 athletes from 39 National Olympic Committees will highlight the final week (Oct 23-30) of the most important multisport event of the region, also known as “the Olympics of the Americas”.

Murer is the only Daegu World champion who has made the trip to the Mexican city, hoping to renew her Pole Vault title won in Rio 2007.

“I am motivated. I took two weeks of rest after Daegu. I did little physical activity but I was more active in the second, but without the poles,” Murer told the Brazilian press before flying to Guadalajara on Friday (21).

With USA’s 2008 Olympic Games silver medallist and 2008 World Indoor silver medalist Jenn Suhr a last-minute absentee, Brazil’s first ever outdoor World champion should face her toughest challenge from Cuba’s Yarisley Silva, improved her CAC record by 20cm to 4.70m to clinch the fifth place in the Korean city.

“I remember her (Silva) from the 2007 Pan American Games, when she finished third,” Murer recalled. Their rivalry could erase the Brazilian’s Games record of 4.60 from the previous edition.

Another interesting Brazil-Cuba duel is expected in the men’s Pole Vault, with Fabio Silva trying to defend his crown against Cuban sensation Lazaro Borges, who improved his national record by 18cm in the Daegu final to take a surprising silver. Borges wants to end his season on a high note, after failing to clear a height in 2007.



The Pan American Games records in athletics are as follows:

I recorded most of them, but our internet isn't very good here. I'll post them when I get back home.

World champion Murer settles for silver at Pan Ams
By CHRIS LEHOURITES
Associated Press
2011-10-25 10:22 AM

World pole vault champion Fabiana Murer failed to defend her Pan American Games title Monday.
The Brazilian vaulter, who won gold in August at the world championships in South Korea, ended up with the silver medal behind Yarisley Silva of Cuba.

"I came here for the gold, of course, but I'm not disappointed. I knew that the I had peaked at the worlds," Murer said. "The Cuban really deserved this, she really elevated her level today."

Silva won the gold after clearing a Pan American Games record 4.75 meters. Murer, who set the previous record of 4.60 four years ago in Rio de Janeiro, was second with a height of 4.70.

"It's magnificent to beat the world champion and win the gold," Silva said. "I didn't expect to be contending like this so soon. It shows how much I've been improving."

But the biggest surprise, besides the Cuban loss in baseball, was Murer's failure to win the pole vault.

"I prepared for the worlds and I won it. I knew it would be difficult here," said Murer, adding she wasn't in top shape. "Each competition is different. I came here thinking about jumping 4.70. I thought it would be enough."
