Lima 2019

Recommended Posts

Very irresponsable from their part, 3 years to go and they haven't even started building anything yet. This is going to be a hot mess worse than the 2003 Pan Ams in Santo Domingo. 

In case they're stripped from the games, would Rio or Guadalajara come up as a backup host?

Rio has no money!

I would think Guadalajara would be the favourite...

Buenos Aires would've just had the Youth Olympics - plus the benefit of not having hosted the Pan Ams for a fair while. Why are there so many problems in Lima - are Peru not one of the more developed, capable countries in Latin America?

Lack of experience hosting an event of this magnitude.

I think we (Argentina) are not in $$$ conditions to host two consecutive year multi-sport events, also I read yesterday that our NOC president wants to try for 2023 PanAm.

 

Anyway, I think Lima will be ok at the end, so no point bringing this up.

I thought the rules for Youth Olympic Games is that they can't build new venues but I guess they will work on improvements of currently existing venues.

Aside from the Village no, only upgrades for existing venues.

I know that there's a lot of uncertainty about the orgabization of the games. Sadly, political issues's been involved in this but in a bad mode. 

Acoording the goverment, the plans are in time, the construction of venues will be starting at 2017 and pression over Lima's major will move everything faster, and media has started to talk about the games in a bad way, but in dispite of this, that's a good new because the games in general now aren't something away from local media.

Now that's the last piece of about the games:

All venues ready for Mars 2019
