Pan American Games appearances (overview)

On June 19, 2019, wrestler Franklin Gómez was named as the country's flag bearer during the opening ceremony.[3]

The Puerto Rico team consisted of 244 athletes.[4]

Originally, Puerto Rico won the gold medal in bowling - men's doubles, though Jean Perez, a member of the bowling team, was tested positive for doping with chlorthalidone, a prohibited diuretic. The Panam Sports Disciplinary Commission announced this positive the day the Lima Games are closed, on 11 August 2019. As a consequence, the Puerto Rican duo loses gold, which passes to the United States. Colombia gets the silver and the bronze goes to the Mexico team.
