Review historical of the Bolivarian games by: ENRIQUE JOEL PAIVA SALAS.
The Bolivarian sports games are born from the idea of bringing together the countries liberated by Simón Bolívar (1783-1830). A man who left his mark on the history of Latin America, who dedicated his life to give freedom to peoples oppressed by the Spanish colonization. Today, his thoughts still has validity in official games, involving Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia and Peru.
These games, which are held every 4 years, dependent of the Bolivarian Sports Organization (ODEBO) who in turn is dependent of the Sports Organization Pan American (PSO), a subsidiary of the International Olympic Committee, and therefore are in the Olympic cycle.
It was in Berlin, during the Olympic Games of 1936, when Colombia originated the idea of organizing regional games who sportingly join countries stood by Simón Bolívar in his voice. Mr Alberto Nariño Cheyne, descendant of laddie Antonio Nariño, by then, the National Director of physical education of Colombia, was the promoter of the Bolivarian games and key man who helped found the national federations and the Colombian Olympic Committee, later managing the recognition of the International Olympic Committee for the Bolivarian games with the participation of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador Panama, Peru and Venezuela.
After many efforts and sacrifices be managed to realize this purpose and thus in 1938, developed the first Bolivarian sports games that took as the seat the city of Bogotá in Colombia, as part of the celebration of the fourth centenary of its foundation.
August 16, 1938, at an event held in the Government Palace, is officially founded the Bolivarian sports organization. Jorge Rodríguez Hurtado de Bolivia, Alberto Nariño Cheyne of Colombia, Galo Plaza Lasso of Ecuador, Luis Saavedra Panama, Alfredo Hohagen Diez Canseco's Peru, and Julio Bustamante Venezuela, were the founding delegates. Three years later in 1941, the Olympic committees have the games be made every four years.
