Cesar Cielho ended up in the hospital for something, but should be ready to compete.

And three naughty dopers have been tossed out! :cheer2:

LOL I thought Pan-Ams was just a gymnastics event until I saw this thread. I looked it up on Wikipedia. OMG looks amazing. Can't see me watching much. But some of the events you have look really cool. Roller skating and water skiing in particular.

This dance routine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQFUO3HKt74) is friggin' funny. I admire her dedication, she just hopped back out!

I've been watching the rhythmic events - its great being in absolute no technik because I can enjoy the routines even though Americans supposedly suck compared to Eastern Europe. :lol:

Hometown Mexican girl was leading the AA until the last clubs routine when she had two drops, shame.

I only caught the second half of group today but especially enjoyed Cuba - the crowd must have too since their placement got booed!

Yes, Cynthia Valdez was leading but those drops were costly and she lost the gold medal to Julie Zetlin (USA)

Anyway a good competition for Cynthia who is competing injured but since this are her last Panam Games and in her hometown she was not going that ankle injury to make her not compete

Today she will have the opportunity to win 2 gold medals as the individual apparatus begin (she actually have the lead with ball, hoop and ribbon)
