PROD tag[edit]

Participating teams[edit]

Beside each participating team, there are numbers in parentheses. For example, beside Argentina there is the number "169". What are these numbers supposed to represent? Magnolia677 (talk) 15:30, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Number of participating athletes. OhanaUnitedTalk page 22:42, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. My concern is that the numbers have been added randomly and without any references, and there's no explanation in the article about what the numbers represent. Magnolia677 (talk) 23:07, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
I agree. There's no reference and no explanation. It should be fixed. Walter Görlitz (talk) 00:03, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
The last addition was from User:Sportsfan 1234, who has been a solid contributor to the Pan Am articles. I'll leave a message on that user's talk page so we can track down a source. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 00:13, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi these numbers are sourced from each of the individual pages that have been created for each sport. Maybe we can make a note of that? Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 00:58, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
