The 2019 Pan American Games, officially the XVIII Pan American Games or the 18th Pan American Games, is a major international multi-sport event that is scheduled to be held from July 26 to August 11, 2019, in Lima, Perú.
Format of Competition
The format was very similar to that of the Olympic Games. All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:
- The team competition, in which the eight highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of five gymnasts could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total.
- The all-around competition, in which only the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. For the first time, each country was limited to only two gymnasts in the all-around final.
- The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
