Four Bids Confirmed To Host 2019 Pan American Games, All First-Time Cities

The Pan American Sports Organization named La Punta, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; Lima, Peru; and Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela "as the four cities that submitted bids for the 2019 Pan Am Games," according to ISPORTCONNECT. Each city is vying for its first opportunity to host the Games, though Venezuela and Argentina have each hosted the event before. Santiago was set to host the '93 winter Pan American Games, but the Games was canceled when the U.S. "threatened to withdraw over a small slate of events." Santiago and Lima "appear to have the edge over La Punta and Puerto Ordaz" in that they are their respective country's capital cities, "meaning travel to and around those cities will be easier, and resources for constructing venues will be easier to obtain" (ISPORTCONNECT, 2/5).
