Hockey, disciplina de Lima 2019
Sport review

In men’s category, Canada and Argentina dominate this sport and have battled for the gold medal at every Pan American Game since 1975. Argentina leads the medal count with nine gold medals, followed by Canada with four. In women’s category, Argentina has played every final match and has won six gold medals. Since 1995, the US has been its opponent in each final match, but has beat Argentina only twice. The field of play measures are almost the same as the American football’s field (91 x 55 m). Each team has 11 players, who use short hooked sticks to hit the ball in order to score goals into the opponent team’s goal. Players may not use their feet, while goalkeepers may use any part of their body to stop a shot. Each match comprises four 15-minute quarters. If the result is a draw at the end of each game period, a shootout competition will be played, according to FIH regulations. In Lima 2019, eight teams divided into two groups will play in a round-robin format. Teams will then compete in the quarterfinals, based on the first stage team ranking. This sport will be held at Villa María del Triunfo Sports Center.

Men’s competition was included for the first time in the Winnipeg 1967 Pan American Games sport program, while the women competition made its debut in Indianapolis 1987. Since 1999, both competitions are qualifiers for the Olympic Games next year. Winners qualify directly.
