The City of Toronto hosted the 2012 Ontario Summer Games from August 16 to 19, 2012. The 2012 Games brought together almost 2,500 athletes competing in 28 sports in multiple venues across Toronto and surrounding regions, as well as 368 coaches, 113 managers, 281 officials, 21 provincial sport organization representatives, more than 1,000 volunteers and thousands of spectators. The Games have been a unique opportunity for many young athletes, as the multi-sport competition serves as a stepping stone to many national and international competitions.
Pictures from the Opening Ceremony, Baseball, Swimming and Beach Volley Ball have been added to the Photo Gallery on Friday August 31. Over 3500 photos have been uploaded, check back often as we continue to process and sort the photos taken by our terrific volunteer photographers.
