Canadian Show Jumping Team Names for 2019 Pan American Games

Canadian jumping team athlete, Nicole Walker, 25, of Aurora, ON is among the athletes experiencing the Pan Am Games for the first time.

“I feel honoured to compete for Canada in the upcoming Pan American Games in Lima. Wearing the red jacket brings added pressure, but it is an incredible feeling to have a whole nation behind you,” said Walker, who is the reigning Canadian Show Jumping Champion. “This will be my first major games. I am riding alongside an experienced team and my horse, Falco van Spieveld, has been in super form. Together I think we can pull off a great result for Canada.”

Walker will be joined on the jumping team by veterans Mario Deslauriers, 54, of Bromont, QC and Lisa Carlsen, 54, of Okotoks, AB. Deslauriers and Carlsen were teammates at the Seoul 1988 Olympic Games, and Deslauriers also has the Los Angeles 1984 Olympic Games under his belt. Rounding out the jumping team is Erynn Ballard, 38, of Tottenham, ON, who made her senior championship debut at WEG 2018 in Tryon, NC.

The 2019 Lima Pan American Games will prove especially meaningful by providing the opportunity for Canada to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.

Lima 2019 will bring together approximately 6,700 athletes from 41 nations of the Americas and feature 62 disciplines in 39 sports. It will be the largest sporting event ever held in Peru.

The equestrian competition will be held at the Club Hípico Militar La Molina. This equestrian venue is located on the eastern outskirts of Lima in a lush area with two golf clubs and polo grounds.
