There will be a huge clock in Nathan Phillips Square for the next year leading up to the PanAm/ParaPanAm games.

The unveiling took place on Friday afternoon.

The Cisco TO2015 Countdown Clock is 5.5 metres tall and has five screens. Four of them will countdown the days, hours, minutes and seconds until the games, while the fifth will encourage interaction.

The touchscreen allows people to access game information and take photos, which they can send to themselves or post on social media.

Toronto Raptor and ambassador for the games, Greivis Vasquez, couldn’t contain his excitement.

“I love this city… I’m so happy to be here... I don’t have words to describe how happy I am right now,” he said.

There were several political figures present including Premier Kathleen Wynne, Minister of Finance Joe Oliver and Mayor Rob Ford.
