7/24/2019
 

INDIANAPOLIS – Olympians, world champions and national champions have been selected to represent the U.S. at the 2019 Pan American Games, July 26-August 11, in Lima, Peru. Lima has made the Games the largest in history, by hosting the competition across 14 districts in Lima and Callao.

 

The men’s and women’s 20k race walk will be the first athletics event of the Games, held on August 4. The remainder track and field competition will take place August 6-11 at Athletics Stadium,in the Villa Deportiva Nacional Videna cluster, with the marathon on July 27 and walks being held at Parque Kennedy. The full schedule can be found here. 

 

As the third-largest international multisport Games, the 2019 Pan American Games will be home to 6,680 athletes from the 41-member nations of the Pan American Sports Organization. Participating athletes will compete in 39 sports across more than 60 disciplines.

 

Pan American and Olympic gold medalist Jeff Henderson is featured on the Team USA roster. In Rio he jumped 8.38m/27-6 for the gold and replicated that mark in his first meet this outdoor season.
