US Women Defend Pan Am Games Team Title
(9 votes, average 4.11 out of 5)



The U.S. women topped Canada and Mexico in a North American sweep of the medals as the artistic gymnastics competition began Monday at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The U.S. women won their third straight team title as the artistic gymnastics competition began Monday at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The U.S. topped Canada and Mexico in a North American sweep of the medals. South American power Brazil, the defending silver medalists, fell to fifth behind Colombia.

The U.S. outscored the field on vault and uneven bars, but performed disastrously on balance beam and floor exercise. Olympic champion Shawn Johnson, who won four golds at the 2007 Pan American Games, dropped off on her standing full and slipped off again on a simple switch leap. Newcomer Jessie Deziel posted the top scores for the U.S. team on balance beam (13.275) and floor exercise (13.150).

Peng-Peng Lee led Canada, which could have won with a stronger performance on uneven bars. The team had the top totals on both balance beam and floor exercise, with Mikaela Gerber posting the best floor score (13.950).

Mexico tallied the second-best totals on vault, beam and floor exercise to win the bronze, its first team medal in 32 years. (Mexico was stripped of its bronze in 2007 for registering an alternate gymnast as a team official.)

Guatamala's Ana Sofia Gomez led the all-around qualification, topping Canadians Lee and Kristina Vaculik.

Competition continues Tuesday with the men's team and individual qualification.
