Sorry for being out of topic but can anyone confirm that Balich has an ongoing trial in Italy right now? Indonesian media recently informed that Balich has a financial problem and a trial which is already finished in first level court at Italy.

The official song of the 2019 Pan Am Games in Lima, performed by Pedro Suarez-Vertiz, called "Jugamos Todos" as the motto of the games.

Enjoy!

Yeah, don't expect anything extremely spectacular, sadly. Seems it will be a very tight budget similar to Rio 2016 (maybe a bit less than that).

Tickets finally went on sale today. Prices are lower than 2015, which is to be somewhat expected even though I saw a report that listed Lima as one of the more expensive cities in Latin America. Several sports, including rowing and canoe/kayak are free. I would be nice to do a second consecutive Pan Am games, but other matters will force me to follow them at home. I would be a little peeved if I were going because the ticketing website lists the basics like date, time, and place for the various sessions, but no other details. How would somebody to wants to see a certain event final know which session to purchase?

I totally low my expectations for ceremonies in Lima, sadly... I really thought that they could have their really strong point on them, but it won't...

Anyway, Lima follows the worldwide tendency of doing low cost ceremonies and create a show totally prepared for TV audiences... some of them could have a great result, as it happened in Gold Coast in 2018... Even the 2018 Olympics and Paralympics had low budgets and simple ceremonies... 

I think, from now on,  we can only expect breathtaking ceremonies at Chinese style for countries which just need to do a big show of them.. such comunist or dictatorships countries, as we could see in Ashgabat or Baku... And we could might have one a new one in Minsk and Beijing in 2022.

For the next Pan Ams in Chile, the Organizing Committee had recently said that the total budget for the games would be almost the half of the one used at this point in Lima... so... you should  not expect great ceremonies either... 

Rio 2016 demostrated that with a low budget you can do something spectacular... a great show for TV, but totally far from the wow effect we had between 2008 and 2015 ... the new tendencies for ceremonies, the Brazilian "gambiara" has reached all over the world: to do something great from almost nothing....

 Yikes. A very small stage indeed. This is not looking well.

Also, strong rumours Luis Fonsi is going to perform Despacito. Oh no. :unsure:
