Santa Marta in Colombia has submitted a bid to stage the 2025 Junior Pan American Games and joins capital cities Asunción in Paraguay and Lima in Peru in the race for hosting rights.
Panam Sports President Neven Ilic visited the latest potential host on the coast of the Caribbean Sea to coincide with the official bid submission.
Ilic’s delegation was met by Magdalena Governor Carlos Caicedo and Santa Marta Mayor Virna Johnson on a three-day visit which included tours of sports venues that are part of the bid and meetings about what the city has to offer.
“In 2025 our city will be 500 years old, so there is no better opportunity to celebrate this very special occasion for all of us and for all of Colombia with the entire continent,” Caicedo said.
“We are waiting for you here, we are going to welcome you with great kindness and make you feel at home as we have done in other events.”
Santa Marta already has a large amount of infrastructure in place due to its hosting of the Bolivarian Games in 2017 – when it was the only city to submit an official candidacy.
“We are very excited that the Panam Sports delegation is in our city and getting to know our strengths, our venues and our people,” Mayor Johnson added.
“We are preparing ourselves and we are very optimistic about hosting the Junior Pan American Games in 2025.”
On his first visit to the city, Ilic left feeling positive and supported the idea of Santa Marta also serving as a co-host of the Barranquilla 2027 Pan American Games.
“I am very impressed,” said the Chilean official.
“The city is very beautiful and its sports infrastructure is very well maintained.
“Everything complies with our standards.
“There are certain things that are still required, but we hope that [in the event it is chosen] the few things that Santa Marta still needs that they are thinking about utilising them for the senior Pan American Games to be sure that all the investment made for 2025 would also serve the Games in 2027.
“That is the philosophy that must be had.
“It seems to me that it is very responsible in economic terms for a country to make an investment in the middle of their journey towards another major event such as the 2027 Pan American Games in Barranquilla.”
Santa Marta is also due to host the host the Central American and Caribbean Beach Games in November this year, although exact dates have not been confirmed.
Should the city be successful it would be the second Colombian host of the Junior Pan American Games after Cali staged the inaugural edition last year.
Colombia is due to host the full Pan American Games and Parapan American Games in 2027 as well, in Barranquilla.

The ping of our free daily email alert, sent every morning at 6.30am UK time 365 days a year, landing in their inbox, is as a familiar part of their day as their first cup of coffee.
Even during the worst times of the COVID-19 pandemic, insidethegames.biz maintained its high standard of reporting on all the news from around the globe on a daily basis. We were the first publication in the world to signal the threat that the Olympic Movement faced from the coronavirus and have provided unparalleled coverage of the pandemic since. 
As the world begins to emerge from the COVID crisis, insidethegames.biz would like to invite you to help us on our journey by funding our independent journalism. Your vital support would mean we can continue to report so comprehensively on the Olympic Movement and the events that shape it. It would mean we can keep our website open for everyone.

We had the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Beijing, where we sent a team of four reporters, and coming up are the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the Summer World University and Asian Games in China, the World Games in Alabama and multiple World Championships. Plus, of course, there is the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The greater the number of people that can keep up to date with global events, and understand their impact, the more sport will be forced to be transparent.

When British skaters Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean won the Olympic gold medal in ice dance at Sarajevo 1984 with 12 perfect 6.0s from every judge, for their interpretation of Maurice Ravel’s Boléro, an important member of their team was singer-actor Michael Crawford. Crawford, who had played Frank Spencer in British sitcom Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em and the title role in the musical The Phantom of the Opera, had become a mentor to the pair in 1981 and went on to help them create their Olympic routine. Crawford said he “taught them how to act”. He was present with their trainer Betty Callaway at the ringside at Sarajevo as they created one of the most iconic moments in Olympic history.
