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.

Three-time USATF Outdoors champion and Olympian, Keturah Orji, will be competing in the triple jump. Prior to the Pan Am Games, Orji will be looking to defend her title at the 2019 Toyota USATF Outdoor Championships in Des Moines on Thursday, July 25.

This will be the second Pan American selection for eight-time outdoor national champion Kara Winger. Winger placed second in the javelin in the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada. 

Donavan Brazier has been selected for his first Pan American Games. The USATF Indoors and Outdoors champion will be competing in the 800m and 1500m prior to Lima, at the USATF Toyota Outdoor Championships. 

In 2015, Team USATF achieved the country’s best Pan American Games performance in the sport of track & field since 1999, collecting 41 medals: 13 gold, 15 silver and 13 bronze over seven days of competition at both CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletics Stadium and along the Ontario Place West Channel.

The U.S. women showed their prowess for international games, winning 23 medals while Team USA’s men won 18.  The U.S. crushed the scoring table with 403 points, outscoring home team Canada by 153 points. Brazil was third with 164 points.
