Lighting the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games Opening Ceremonies

American and Caribbean Games are held every four years, and much like the Olympics, athletes from around the region compete in a variety of sports, some of which can qualify them for the Pan American Games in 2015. The Games date back to 1924 when the Mexican Olympic Society wanted to make the participants more competitive. Last November, the Games took place in a 30,000-capacity newly refurbished stadium in Veracruz, the first time they were held outside of Mexico City. Around 5,700 athletes from 31 countries competed in 46 different sports in front of over a million people.
