My name’s Milco! I’m the mascot of the Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games. I was born in the most sporting Cuchimilcos’ workshop around the world. I carry the heritage of a culture dated back to 1200, but I came to the world in 2017, in the Peruvian National Holidays. I’m the number one fan of the Pan American and Parapan American Games! I know that’s not talent but hey! I can adapt to the most demanding conditions (like any Peruvian) and transform my tattoos and clothing according to the sport I practice: indoors, outdoors or aquatic sports. Awesome, right? I love competitiveness, but I love sports more than winning. So, I always defend fair play and JUSTICE above all! They say that I was born in a stone oven, but each field and court is my home. I’m in every little place that houses your favorite sports and in the enthusiastic hearts of each sports fan.

I want to highlight the work of Andrea Medrano, my creator. Who with only 24 years could give me life thanks to his creativity, presenting me in a contest where more than 1,000 interested parties applied. However, thanks to the 19,000 votes I obtained, I now have the honor of being the host of the Pan American and Parapan American Games.
