Water Polo, Field Hockey and Handball. The winners of each respective gender and sport qualify for London. Use Wikipedia, I have extensively updated it.

Handball

Water polo

Field hockey

way more than that... some member of the braziliam OC said up to 20 spots for the olympics could be guaranteed in the olympics like Sailing and other not-so-popular sports...

^^ "in the olympics" = in the panamerican games..

Those are the team sports only which the question asked. In total 15 sports offer qualifying events for the Olympics.

Report: Pan-Am Games Scrambling to Finish Venues

With less than a month to go before the Pan-Am Games being, reports are that several new venues are not ready.

The Guadalajara Reporter reports that the new athletics stadium is only 85 percent complete, and venues for handball, karate, Basque pelota, rowing, canoeing and rugby are all incomplete.

The deadline for the athletics stadium is very tight, as the opening ceremonies are October 14. They have a little more time for the rugby venue, Tlaquepaque Stadium, which won't be needed until about two weeks later. The Rugby 7s tournament, which includes the USA and Canada, will kick off October 29.

“We’ve had problems with the developer in charge, he has not advanced as planned, so we will get other builders in to speed up the process,” said Hugo Rodriguez, the Organizing Committee's director of Infrastructure. “We want it to be finished in September. Maybe a few added details will be completed in October, but everything will be ready before the 14th. What’s missing is the floor, the roof cover and the paintwork. We are already working on the track.”

Such delays are not unprecedented. Many of the venues in Rio de Janeiro remained unfinished a month before the 2007 Pan American Games began, including the athletes’ village, the main stadium, a water park and a major sports complex. The Athens Olympics of 2004 experienced similar problems.

In contrast, the Olympic Committee in London announced on July 19 that 88 percent of the sporting infrastructure was already complete a year ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games.

The Athletes' Village is still due to open October 4.

That article seems to imply that the opening ceremony is at the athletics venue which, of course, is not true. The first action at the athletics stadium isn't until the second weekend of the Games.

Your right, they have mistaken it for the OC of the 2011 Parapan American Games.

The 70% is the most ever in terms of tickets sold for the Pan American Games, and is close the Beijing.

Keep in mind that most of the venues only have a seating capacity ranging from under 1,000 to 4,000. Omnilife Stadium is the only venue that has a rather large seating capacity.

Yes your right. But you rather have smaller and fuller stadiums then bigger and empty stadiums.
