    Default Were all the Venues Finished in Time?

    I haven't read anywhere -- including in today's DR1 News -- whether all the PanAm Games venues actually were completed in time. This was a big concern just two weeks ago when I was in SD. Now that the games are officially open, are there any venues not yet completed, and if so, which ones?
    Thanks!

    It looks like you were not very well informed, or you were misinformed. check again please.

    Eric,
    I have to wonder about your blanket statement -- misinformed, or just wishful thinking? Are you in SD, and have visited all the facilities (actually, several of the venues are outside SD)? I have heard from a reliable source that's been checking on the facilities that several of the facilities have problems due to last-minute rush jobs. Just wanted to know if anyone can confirm that, either through trustworhy media reports, or from firsthand observation.
    Regards,
    Keith

    Well guys i happen to pass by the parque del este and other places which i don't know their location everything i saw was finish as for small details i have no idea i didn't built the structures, sorry but i had no time to be looking for little mistakes to complain about, i really saw the effort that was put into these games by Hippo and his clowns.

    Well, Erick, one of my cousins drove me around those same Parque del Este sites just three weeks ago, and many parts of looked nowhere near finished at that time, so it made me wonder how some of it would be finished in time (i.e., were there any important corners cut?). And just 10 days ago I saw beam welding being done at the Olympic Center at night with very little lighting -- again, something that makes you go "ummmm"? I'm not talking about "small details," nor "just looking for little mistakes to complain about."
    Regards,
    Keith

    I heard that you could hear the construction going on while the opening ceremonies were taking place!
