Rio has no money!

I would think Guadalajara would be the favourite...

Don't count Guadalajara. The city is also in a dire economic situation and the legal mess over the Paramerican village is still ongoing.

Well if they do drop out and the US Pan Am organization is interested in hosting, might I suggest Philadelphia, New Orleans or Austin? All 3 cities have a track and field stadium that's ready to use, with some minor renovations, if any needed, I'm sure. And all of them should have enough venues to easily accommodate the smaller capacities required for a Pan Am games.

President of Peru Pedro Pablo Kusznski said that despite natural disasters, Pan Am will continue their way... Sports don't have to do with political reasons that argued some anti Pan Am politicians...

Are these massive floods even affecting Lima itself? 

There have been some floods in the periphery, but in location about the games there's not trouble.

Women's baseball and football have been dropped from the 2019 Pan Am Games program, so much for gender equality :p

 

And sport climbing will not be contested.

Baseball is not surprising as it will be hard enough to field a quality Peruvian mens national baseball team. But no womens football is astonishing.

It's just women's baseball that has been dropped. The event was added only in 2015 by Canada. Usually the host nation adds one sport that they want. Therefore it makes complete sense. The sports added by the host nations were not contested at the next games.

2007- Futsal

2011- Basque Pelota

2015 - Women's baseball

2019 - Surfing  (later added by the IOC to the 2020 program) and Basque pelota

As much as I prefer animal mascots to humans, I;d go with Milco - he's at least vaguely "Incan". Otherwise, anyone but Amantis!

Wayqi is adorable! (Sorry but I have a soft spot for lizards). The other two....not so good, tbh. :unsure:. I hope they pick him.

From this video it seems that Milco has won the vote isn't it?

Milco has won the contest.

 

And in the first seconds of the video, will be that the cauldron?
