FIRST POST EVER!!!! Start Talking about the real posibbilities Santiago has to host the Pan Am games for the first Time in history. Let's make some review. Chile could have hosted the Pan Am Games twice, but it rejected to do it due to financial and political reasons. In 1974 the Games were awarded to Stgo,but militar cup made to move the games to Mexico City, which just years befores hosted the Olympics. In 1987 Chile again was awarded to host the games, but newly they were rejected by Pinochet goverment, giving reasons that the country was not in condition to afford the games since in 1985 a big earthquake hit the country and money had to be spent in reconstruction. This time the games has to be scheduled in Indianapolis, USA. Now is the first time there is a real interest in Chile to host a intenational event. Chile will host the 2014 South American Games, which will be a sort of test to measure the organization capacity, Many new bids are in proyects to be constructed with high panamerican standards. During 2011 Games in Guadalajara, COCH (Comite Olímpico Chileno, Chilean Olympic Committtee) made lobby with PASO to host the games. In 2015 Chile will host the soccer American Cup. Chile has the strongest economy in the region and Santiago is the city with major international invest in South America. Chile is the most reliable country for bussiness in South America. Santiago has 7 millions people. which make an interesting piont for media, sponsors and tourism... Chile has the most modern comuncational system in South America with high standard in comuncation, phones and internet. The conectivity into the city is one of the best in South America, too with its current 5 subway lines (in 2019 will be 6), a modern bus transportation system and modern and high standars highways. Santiago's airport is one of the best in South America and one of the safest in the entire world. Santiagio is ready!... 2019 Games have to come here!! A just made a correction. For 2019 Santiago will have 7 subway lines!!!. One of the new station will take people directly to the Olympic Park which is proyected to be built....
