    1999 Pan American Games

    The Pan American Games are an Americas version of the Olympic Games held in a different country every four years.

    Several years in advance, the host country for the Pan American Games selects at least 15 medal-status sports from an approved list of 28 medal-status sports. Bowling is included in the list of 28 medal sports. By this selection, the host country determines which sports will be included in that Pan American Games session.

    Bowling received medal status from the Pan American Sports Organization Council in November 1986 with the first competition as a medal sport being held in 1991 in Havana, Cuba.

    Bowling was a demonstration sport in the 1983 Pan American Games in Caracas, Venezuela.
