Heather Miller, Heptathlon silver medalist “The finish was okay. The 800 is my strongest event, and that was a little slow time for me. I knew I was leading and that I had to just come ahead of the next girl by two seconds. We went out a little slow, so the time wasn’t great. But I was just trying to win that race.” “My whole heptathlon as a whole was kind of up and down. The 200 yesterday was not good at all, but then I came back and long jumped really well. I had a PB in high jump today, so there were some good and some bad (events).”
TORONTO -- Team USA completed the country’s best Pan American Games performance in the sport of track & field since 1999, collecting 41 medals: 13 golds, 15 silvers and and 13 bronzes over seven days of competition at both CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletics Stadium and along the Ontario Place West Channel.

TORONTO -- Team USA ended the final session of track & field at the Pan American Games in celebratory fashion with a women's 4x100-meter relay record, 13 golds and a total of 41 overall for the most medals earned since 1999. The U.S. women won 23 total medals, the highest number since 1987.
Craig Leon, fifth place “For the most part, I think for the first two loops the pack was together. At various points during the first two loops, there would be somebody who pushed the pace a little bit and it would string out and then come together. I think for me, I just tried to ride out some of those early surges and tried to just put (myself) in the hunt on the last loop, and I think I was maybe seventh going into the final loop and was able to move up a couple spots so I was happy.”
