RESULTS: 2019 Pan American Games – Bodybuilding & Fitness.
Classic Bodybuilding and Fitness were the two disciplines presented to the world for the first time on a Olympic level at the 2019 Pan American Games (2019 Lima).
This was a truly historic day for the sport of bodybuilding and fitness.
The event is governed by the Pan American Sports Organization, which represents the 41 National Olympic Committees of the 41 countries taking part, so it is effectively an Olympic Games for the Americas and the Caribbean.
Lima 2019, which will be the 18th Pan American Games, will bring thousands of elite athletes from North America, South America, Central America, and the Caribbean to Peru to participate in 38 sports. That Bodybuilding is one of them has not happened by chance, it is the result of decades of lobbying first by IFBB founders Joe and Ben Weider and more recently by current IFBB president Dr. Rafael Santonja.
Below are the full results and competitors list for the event that took place on 10 August, 2019:
