It is possible that the games will be streamed in Mexico by Claro Sports, but nothing is confirmed yet.

Well, I know it will be streamed in the US on ESPN 3, but I am curious to know about other live streams since ESPN 3 won’t show everything.

Claro has livestream of major sport competitions, even if they don't take place in Mexico. But probably they will announce their coverage a week before the games.

Modern's pentathlon Mixed and Women's Relay are confirmed by the Mexican federation to be "rescued" and back in the Games program.

 

Also, Marca Claro has already announcedin its FB page it will broadcast the Games. Let's hope they show most of the events.

Well I’m glad that some events were supposedly revived.

ESPN’s US coverage will be very extensive, showing all most 12-20 streams a day, their still missing a lot of sports, but the coverage is better than normal. Hopefully Claro’s coverage is similar or better. If it’s better would mind posting the link.

Official website says that their will be 5,424 athletes competing in the games :clap:. This is the new record for entries at any Central American and Caribbean Games (by 400). Mexico will have the most entries with 672 :yikes:! Sint Marten will have the smallest number of entries with 4.

Mexican Olympic Committee confirmed that 14 events managed to get enough participants to be on the program again.

 

Athletics (4): Men's Marathon, Men's 50km Race Walk,  Women's 10,000m, Women's 3,000m Steeplechase

Modern Pentathlon (2): Women's Relay & Mixed Relay

Rowing (1): Women's Pair

Taekwondo - Poomsae (1): Mixed Pairs

Weightlifting (6): Men's 77kg Snatch, Men's 77kg Clean & Jerk, Women's 90kg Snatch, Women's 90 Clean & Jerk, Women's +90kg Snatch & Women's +90kg Clean & Jerk.

 

I'm especially glad about Rowing, Pentathlon and Weightlifting; I couldn't care less about Poomsae, but what I will really miss is women's 20km,as our best athlete will miss the Games.
