    First medals! Gold to Heather Irmiger (USA) for Women's X-Country Mountain Bike! Silver to Mexico, Bronze to Canada.

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

    And three naughty dopers have been tossed out!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The results server has crashed, sigh.

    Here's a nicely detailed article about this evening's swimming competition.

    Terra USA has got extremely thorough live coverage from which to choose!

    Watching tennis at the moment. Fun stuff, though the camera-work is gonna force me to take a Dramamine.

    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)

    Marcel Sturmer's gear was stolen when he and his coach were on their way to the airport, to go to Mexico.

    Some guy got in the car, pointed a gun at the coach and she had to leave the car. The car was later found, but all of the stuff was gone: skates, costumes, etc. Fortunetely, no one was hurt.

    Neverthless, he went going to Mexico with an old costume and brand new (...and unbroken) skates.

    Wishing him all the best.

    Too bad Anna Li wasn't sent back from Japan as soon as Marta decided not to name her -- rather ridiculous that she's not getting any chance for international competition right now.

    Don't forget, Memmel is not on the team anymore. She decided to have shoulder surgery after the training camps rather than risk further damage.

    2 gold medals for Mexico in Squash (two more to get)
    3 golds for Argentina in Rowing

    In half an hour you could watch rhytmic gymnastics finals, trampoline qualification

    thus far taekwondo has been very exciting to watch
