Pan American Games Day 10 | Track and Field (Athletics)

October 26th, 2011

Today was the first day of track and field events or “Athletics” if you are from any country other than the USA. I photographed mostly women’s pole vault as it seemed to be the most visually interesting thing going on. Here are the photos:
