Parksville’s Langerfeld earns two gold

Locals doing great as host Team Canada continues to rack up medals

Make it double gold for Kai Langerfeld as his team captured their second, this time in the men’s eight rowing at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto.

Langerfeld, from Parksville, was on the men’s coxless four team that captured a gold medal earlier on in competition at the Pan Am Games.

The Canadians were once again the favourites heading in o the finals last Wednesday in the men’s eight event and they didn’t disappoint.

Langerfeld and company were in control at the 500 metre mark, 3.6 seconds ahead of the team from

Argentina, and they kept up their pace the rest of the way.

Canada held on to the lead the entire race and would go on to finish in first place as they beat out the second place Argentina team by 3.07 seconds.

That’s two gold medals for Langerfeld now, bringing his Pan Am Games haul to a close.

Nanoose Bay’s Mike Mason is next up for local hopefuls as he’ll go for gold on July 25 in the men’s high jump event.

As of July 20, Canada has 54 gold and 101 medals in total so far.
