Tim Landeryou may have lost his final men's doubles match, yet he isn't leaving the Pan Am Games in Toronto empty-handed.
Saskatoon's Landeryou & teammate Vincent Gagnon of Montreal lost to Bolivia in the men's racquetball doubles semifinal, yet their successful run until that point ensured them a bronze medal.
"I don't think we played badly," Landeryou told Racquetball Canada. "We just needed to kill shots to win & couldn't do that tonight as well as we did in the rest of our games this week. Of course I would like to have won, yet they were a tough team & I'm really pleased to win a medal at the Pan Am Games with my family here."
The 31-year-old Landeryou is the latest Saskatchewan athlete to bring home a medal, bringing the total to seven.
Landeryou will have a chance to add another medal this weekend. He'll compete in the men's team quarter-finals on at 7:50 a.m. CST.
