Only having met each other in the last hour, the two athletes from Guyana head off to explore Toronto. Jason Yaw, a running coach and Winston, a runner are two of thousands of athletes at this year's Pan Am Games in Toronto.

From the small northern country of Guyana in South America with a population less than half of Toronto, Jason is a quiet, soft-spoken man who is enjoying his visit to Toronto. At the Pan Am Games, Jason coaches the 400 metre race. He will soon be heading to the Panamerican Junior Championships held in Edmonton and will be competing.

With an ever present smile and quick to laugh, Winston George from Bartica, Guyana is a 100 metre runner. He just finished the preliminaries but was not able to move forward. He is now free to enjoy the city, "That's why I'm walking around out here checking out the city," he says laughing. He will return to Florida on Monday where he lives and trains.
