The IV South American Games (Spanish: Juegos Sudamericanos; Portuguese: Jogos Sul-Americanos) were a multi-sport event held in 1990 in Lima, Peru, with some events in Arequipa (cycling and weightlifting) and Trujillo (artistic gymnastics and taekwondo). The Games were organized by the South American Sports Organization (ODESUR).[1] An appraisal of the games and detailed medal lists were published elsewhere,[2] emphasizing the results of the Argentinian teams.

The games were officially opened by Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori. Torch lighter at the Estadio Nacional del Perú was Olympic silver medalist, volleyball player Cecilia Tait.

Colombia rather preferred to participate at the Central American and Caribbean Games at Ciudad de México taking place almost at the same time, and sent no athletes. Venezuela also preferred to participate at the Central American and Caribbean Games, but sent at least a small contingent of 56 athletes.
