Today marks the opening of the sixty fourth Pan Am games held in Toronto Ontario. The games will feature nearly 7000 athletes from all over the world competing in thirty six different competitions.  Events begin today and conclude on July 26th. Thruflow is a proud supporter of the Pan Am Games and thrilled to announce that our product will be featured in this years games on many Pride Marine Docking Systems.  On Saturday,  July 11th,  35 women will run bike and swim in a grueling triathlon, ( 1.5 km swim 40.2 km bike and 10km run)  arguably the most physically demanding event of the competition . The women will start the race by sprinting into the water for the initial  swim leg of the race, and when they do they will be relying on the strength and grip of Thruflow decking to get them quickly and safely into the water. The ramp entering the waters have been produced by long time Thruflow partners Pride Marine Group who have installed a floating dock system which supports the decking.  On July 12th thirty six men take to the same course to tackle the triathlon. We would like to thank the Pan Am Games and Pride Marina Group and wish all athletes participating the best of luck.
