Canadian city Toronto Friday was awarded the right to host the 2015 Pan American Games.

In a secret ballot by the Pan American Sports Organization, Toronto won on the first round with 33 votes, eliminating Lima, Peru, which received 11, and Bogota, which earned 7. One vote of the 52 was invalid.

Canada has held the event twice - in Winnipeg in 1967 and 1999.
