Kiejko shoots down second gold for Canada
Canada’s latest double gold medallist is Lynda Kiejko, the shooter took the title in Pan Am Games women’s 25m pistol three days after winning the 10m event.
The news first broke on Twitter on Wednesday that Kiejko had repeated the gold medal feat in the longer showdown against the best shooters from the Americas gathered at the Pan Am Shooting Centre in Innisfil, Ontario.
Pan Am officials later made it official. The win is Canada’s third in shooting at Toronto 2015.
Kiejko’s triumph is particularly special for Team Canada at the Pan Am Games, as it is the 31st gold medal for the host nation, surpassing its golden haul from Guadalajara 2011.
