Ah, I’ve awoken this thread it seems.
Yes, I was aware of Panam Sports new website and their reports. The Lima2019 results books were perfect because they were in the style I collect (of course I’d already downloaded all the PDFs and created results books myself before they published those ), but I wasn’t that interested in the official reports since they seemed not well copied, and most had information I already know existed elsewhere. It was still great that Panam Sports took some initiative to publish those though because it’s not like that information is easy to come by (until now).
I like collecting results in the “PDF Report/Results Book” format. I’ve also begun collecting media guides, volunteer guides, spectator guides, wallpapers/posters, venue maps, broadcast schedules, etc. for all international multi-sports games. I too love to see old photos, pictograms, logos, statistics, etc. Plus, having a vast personal library really helps increase the credibility and informational side of my reporting. I only began collecting in 2017/2018, but I’ve already cataloged thousands of pages of results and other documents. I’m always excited by a new find, so I know how you felt when you came across Panam Sports treasure trove of reports. There’s decent information available for both the OCA and CGF if you know where to look, or spend times building up contacts within the international sports community. The CGF archives all the Commonwealth Games websites. The 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018 websites are all still functioning and are left in their original condition (which is something all these organizations should do honestly). The IWGA (World Games) does that as well. You can find links to all the results from 2005, 2009, 2013, and 2017 on their website. The OCA has a separate website for modern results, and I’ll post the link to that below. I’ve also found that data companies (that ran the results for said games) and organizations that run the games are generally willing to help, though it can be hit or miss.
I’m always down to make new contacts and friends in the international sports community, so hit me up if you need anything.
