I think it should be ideal sort of Incas children, showing how proud is Peru of their millenial history and culture. Children figures were "mascots" in Lillehammer '94, for instance...

(Still hurting Santiago failure.... Ouch!.. snif!!!)

Something like this??

Do you agree??

Yes!! It should be... By coincidence the Spanish word LLAMA stands for two meanings:The Andean animal and for FLAME...

When is spanish we reffer to "The Olympic flame" we say "La LLAMA Olímpica"

So, this time the very word LLAMA reffers to the Animal and the flame itself. by saying "LA LLAMA PANAMERICANA" (the animal and the flame just in one :P:D:lol:

Do you agree?

Visit this link and you will see the two words in one concept:

Neven Ilic, president of Chilean Olympic Committee (COCH) stated Santiago will bid for 2023 Pan Am Games.

(Note in Spanish)


He stated.

"Chile took a road, and we will not quit. If we do, everything which have been done so far will be useless and should be like start from square one"

Personally speaking bidding for 2023 is a strong challenge. Vasquez Raña is encouraging US to bid and this make things too difficut. On the other hand, US is interested in an Olympic bid for 2024. Just in that case Chile bid could be possible. Two bordering countries hosting 2 games in a row should be unpreceded. Besides, Chile at that time will have already hosted 3 important international events: South American Games in 2014, America Cup in 2015 and FIFA U-17 World Cup also in 2015.....

Should it be possible??
