Interesting History about the Pan American Games – Pan Am Games

The Pan American Games: History, Medal-Winning Nations & DatesThe first-ever time, the idea of organizing a Pan American game was raised during the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, in which the Latin American countries were more enthusiastic about holding such an event. The first Pan American Games then was held in 1937 at Dallas but it was poorly followed by the public at that time and the records were never counted for those games. Then again in the first-ever Pan American Sports Congress held in 1940 in Buenos Aires it was decided that such a gaming event must organize and Buenos Aires should be the first city to host the Pan Am games in that year only, but then it was canceled due to the Second World War. In the second Pan American Sports Congress, it was finally decided that from 1951 there will be a regular Pan American Game every four years and Buenos Aires will be the first host only. Except for Canada, which was a Commonwealth Nation then, most of the Pan American countries participated in the Buenos Aires games.

Below are the sports that are played in Pan Am Games, and which countries are with the most medals.
