The Pan American Masters Games in Rio that were postponed to 2022 due to ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, have now been canceled.
The event was scheduled to take place this autumn 2022. However, the pandemic and the economic strain that follows make it impossible to hold the event in 2022. Therefore, the Organising Committee and the IMGA have made the difficult decision to cancel the event.
The IMGA still believes Rio would be an ideal host to organise the Games. Therefore, we are working with the Organising Committee to see if we can find a solution for 2028 to bring the Masters community together in this vibrant city destination.
We are now focusing on our next Pan American Masters Games in Cleveland which will take place from 12 – 23 July 2024. These Games promise to be a spectacular celebration of sport, fun and friendships in the beautiful Great Lakes region, situated on the Southern shore of Lake Erie. Together with the Cleveland Organising Committee we are preparing for an amazing event where Masters athletes will be able to compete, and share their passion for an active and healthy lifestyle, with other like-minded adults.
