Peru's capital, Lima, was elected with 31 votes as the city that will host the 2019 Pan American Games, leaving Chile's Santiago, Argentina's La Punta and Venezuela's Ciudad Bolívar behind.

On Twitter, some were happy about the news, like Nelson Peñaherrera C:

So glad that the 2019 Pan American Games will be held in Lima! Let's get ready!

But there was also skepticism:

They are making such a big deal about it, as if someone actually follows the Pan American games.
