Curt Harnett’s voice was raspy, so he was trying to take it easy during the weekend. He hiked up and down the stairs at Varsity Stadium, tossing pins into the crowd at the Pan American Games archery competition, in between waving a huge Canadian flag. But Canada’s chef de mission – and the team’s head cheerleader – was otherwise keeping quiet. “Still able to talk (barely), which is a good thing,” Harnett said. “I’ve had a couple of days where I’ve tried to stay quiet, and the crowd’s doing their job. But I can’t contain myself, I’m emotionally invested in all of this, the success of our athletes is important to me as a person, it’s a sense of pride that I can’t seem to shake.” A week into the Pan American Games, there has been plenty of reason to be proud and vocal. Canada topped the medal table through most of Week 1 before falling to second Saturday night. The United States led with 50 gold and 135 total medals. Canada had 48 gold and 122 medals through Saturday. But Canada boosted its gold medal total to 52 heading into Sunday’s late evening events.
