2002 South American Games

2002 South American Games

The VII South American Games (Spanish: "Juegos Sudamericanos"; Portuguese: "Jogos Sul-Americanos") were a multi-sport event held in 2002 in Rio de Janeiro,
São Paulo, Curitiba and Belém, all in Brazil. The Games were organized by the South American Sports Organization (ODESUR). Originally awarded to Córdoba, Argentina, the Games were moved to Bogotá, Colombia, following an economic crisis in Argentina. Later, violence between the Colombian government and guerrillas caused Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Venezuela to threaten to leave the Games, which resulted in the relocation to Brazil. Colombia did not send a delegation to protest this decision.
