The VIDENA’s Athletics Stadium will open its doors tomorrow for a preliminary visit: the eight-time Olympic champion and world record holder of 100, 200 and 4x100 relay from Jamaica, Usain Bolt, will tour the facilities of the San Luis venue, rebuilt by Lima 2019 for the Pan American and Parapan American Games, which will start on July 26.

Bolt, who will arrive for the first time in Lima as part of a Puma campaign, will tour part of the facilities and the athletics track where close to 750 athletes will compete, not only for gold medals at the Pan American and Parapan American Games, but also to qualify to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The three-time gold medalist in 100 and 200 meters at the Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games and member of the winning relay team at the last two Games, will be welcomed by Lima 2019 Executive Director Carlos Neuhaus, Lima Mayor Jorge Muñoz and Panam Sports Communications Director Alejandro Goycoolea.

The new athletics stadium has capacity for over six thousand spectators and is in its final stage.
