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:
¡Qué alegría que los #Panamericanos  2019 se realicen en Lima! ¡a prepararnos!

So glad that the 2019 Pan American Games will be held in Lima! Let's get ready!
But there was also skepticism:
Tanto color que le ponen, como si alguien de verdad siguiera los juegos panamericanos

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