PAN AM GAMES

1999 GAMES

Winnipeg, Canada, has been designated the host city for the XIIIth Pan American Games, July 23-Aug. 8, 1999. An estimated 5,000 athletes from 42 nations will compete in 41 different sports. The United States will send approximately 750 athletes.

The Pan American Games are held every four years preceding the Olympic Games. The Pan Am Games consists of all Summer Olympic sports, plus some non-Olympic sports, since they serve as an Olympic-qualifying event for many sports. In terms of the number of sports and athletes, the Pan American Games are second in size only to the Olympics.

The first Pan American Games were held in 1951, but its history goes back two decades earlier. In 1932, the South American delegation of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) proposed the formation of an organization to promote amateur sports in the Americas. The idea developed and led to the first Pan American Sports Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1940. The 16 countries represented at the meeting formed the Pan American Sports Committee. They also agreed to hold the first Pan American Games in 1942 in Buenos Aires, but World War II forced their postponement.

The idea stayed alive, and at the 1948 Olympic Games in London, a second congress was held, renewing the commitment to hold the Games. The first Pan American Games opened on Feb. 25, 1951, in Buenos Aires, with 2,513 athletes from 21 countries. The organization governing the Games was renamed the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) in 1955 and is currently made up of 42 nations of North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean. The PASO headquarters are in Mexico City.

                       *The International Olympic Committee counts the
                       artistic and rhythmic disciplines in gymnastics
                       as one sport (gymnastics); the three
                       disciplines of artistic, hockey and speed
                       roller skating as one sport (roller skating);
                       the aquatic disciplines of diving, swimming,
                       synchronized swimming and water polo as one
                       sport (swimming); and the freestyle and
                       Greco-Roman wrestling disciplines as one sport
                       (wrestling). Therefore, the number of sports in
                       each Pan American Games may vary in other
                       reference materials if individual disciplines
                       are counted as sports.
