The Pan American Games, second only to the Olympics as the biggest international sports competition in the world, are held every four years (during the year prior to the Summer Olympics) under the sponsorship of the International Olympic Committee. The first Pan American games were scheduled to take place in Buenos Aires in 1942, but the outbreak of World War II forced the games to be postponed. The first Pan American Games were held on February 25, 1951, with more than 2,500 athletes from 22 countries participating. This book lists the results of the Pan American Games from their commencement to the most recent games in 1999. The results are listed by sport (alphabetically), and each listing includes a chronology of the sport in the context of the Pan American Games; a list of the gold, silver, and bronze winners for each year; and charts that show how many medals each country won for that sport in each set of games. Also included are lists of the medals by country, medals by sport, sports by years contested, countries of the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO), presidents of PASO, and a chronology of the Pan American Games.
