2019 Sport Program

Since the inaugural Pan American Games in 1951, the number of sports has doubled in size from 18 to 39. Generally, the Pan American Games program is modeled after the upcoming Olympic Games. The host city and the international sports federations make suggestions to the Pan American Sports Organization on additional disciplines to add to the program, and then the Panam Sports Executive Committee and member countries vote on these recommendations.

Thirty-two sports from the Olympic program will be contested at the Pan Am Games in 2019. In addition to the Olympic sports, the XVIII Pan American Games will also feature several Pan Am-only sports that are not part of the Tokyo Games program, including basque pelota, bodybuilding, bowling, racquetball and squash.

Lima will feature the Pan Am Games debut of bodybuilding and surfing, while basque pelota returns after an eight-year absence.
