ESPN Taps Gian Marco Zignago For Pan American Games Anthem: Exclusive


The games will be held in Lima this summer, airing on ESPN Deportes in the U.S.

ESPN recruited Latin Grammy-winning Perun artist Gian Marco Zignago for its anthem for the 2019 Pan American games, to be held in Lima this summer.

"El Triunfo Es Mi Destino” (Triumph Is My destiny)” is premiering on Billboard today (April 22) alongside a video featuring Perun landscapes and animated scenes of athletes participating in game events. The anthem kicks off the sports network's XVII Pan American Games campaign.

“This song is based on the dreams, yearnings, and feelings of an athlete,” says the singer-songwriter, who says his ballad — accented with Latin urban rhythms — is meant to serve as inspiration for those from the Americas who participate in the multi-sport games, held every four years.

The games will air July 27-Aug. 11 on ESPN Deportes in the U.S., and on ESPN in Mexico, Central America and the Dominican Republic.
