Bolivarian Games


Bolivarian Games

The Bolivarian Games (Spanish: "Juegos Bolivarianos", full name "Juegos Deportivos Bolivarianos") are a regional multi-sport event held in honor of Simón Bolívar, organized by the Bolivarian Sports Organization ("Organización Deportiva Bolivariana", ODEBO). The event is open to the countries liberated by Bolívar or those born from these.

The first Games were held in 1938 in Bogotá, Colombia for the city's 400th anniversary. They have since been held irregularly, but every four years since 1973, with the last edition in Armenia and Pereira in Colombia in 2005.
