Canada moved closer to cracking the 100 medal mark at the Pan Am Games on Friday afternoon.

Michel Dion claimed the bronze medal in the Men's 50-metre Rifle Prone event. Dion finished with a total score of 183.8.

Cassio Cesar Rippel of Brazil took the gold with a Pan Am Games record score of 207.7 while Michael McPhail of the United States picked up the silver.

For Dion, it's his second Pan Am medal in this event, having first won bronze at the 1995 Games in Mar Del Plata.

The medal gives Canada a total of 98, one behind the United States in the overall count. Canada still leads with 38 gold medals.

Canada is on pace to surpass the 119 medals won four years ago at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Mexico
