Canada added a final three medals to its tally Sunday at the 2015 UCI Pan American Championships in Santiago, Chile.
Monique Sullivan won the women's Keirin, while Allison Beveridge moved up the women's Omnium ranking on the second day to take the silver medal. Hugo Barrette took the bronze medal in the men's Sprint in a tightly disputed contest.
With the gold medals in the women's Sprint and women's Keirin, and the bronze medal in the women's Team Sprint, Sullivan ends the Pan American Championships with three medals.
Hugo Barrette made his international breakthrough with two golds and a bronze medal at the recent Pan American Games in Toronto. In his semi-final against his friend and training partner Njisane Phillip of Trinidad and Tobago, he conceded victory in a hard-fought battle. He made up for his semi-final loss in the bronze medal duel, beating in two clean heats his opponent from Venezuela.
In the women's Omnium race, Allison Beveridge entered the last three races sitting in third place of the standings. In the last three races, she managed to gain a spot, climbing to the second place overall for the silver medal.
