Early on, despite the weather, a large number of fans attended the competitions in the district of Santiago de Surco. 

There are several disciplines to see, such as men's and women's skeet, women's pistol, and men's rifle.  

Furthermore, in the women's category, Olympic champion Kimb Rohde and world champion Dania Vizzi, both of them Americans, competed at the skeet event.  

For the men's category, Nicolas Pacheco from Peru, Federico Gil from Argentina, and Juan Miguel Rodriguez from Cuba, bronze medalist at Toronto 2015, also attended the competition.  

The Pan American Games was an opportunity to show the impressive, world-class Las Palmas Air Base Shooting Range to the world. 

“It's amazing. It's one of the best fields  I've been, and it's evident that the organization did a great job,” said world champion Dania Vizzi. 

Despite the weather, her performance was superb, and she qualified to the final round. “I'm from Florida, and I'm used to hot weather, I like it better. I've participated in venues with different temperatures, even in snow, but the only thing that matters to me is having a good aim and being among the bests,”said Dania. She also praised the development of the Pan American Games and mentioned that she would like to come back to Peru.  

Vizzi will compete at the women's skeet final against Peruvian Daniela Borda, who finished the last stage with a perfect round of 25-plates. 

The Lima 2019 Pan American Games includes 12 single events, equally divided between men and women, as well as three mixed double events in the precision disciplines (pistol and rifle), and shotgun events (skeet and trap).Events are finished tomorrow, on August 3.
