CYCLIST Leah Kirchmann of Winnipeg won the silver medal last Sunday in the women's road race at the 2012 UCI Pan-American Championships at Mar Del Plata, Argentina.

"I'm really excited that I won a silver for Canada. It's one of my greatest achievements and it was one of my targeted races this season," Kirchmann, the 2011 Canadian criterium champion, said in a statement to the Canadian Cycling Association. "The team worked really well together."
