South American Games 2018

Recommended Posts

As I predicted, gold for our men's team in artistic gymnastics. The score was too low, but still enough for gold. Jossimar Calvo earned a deserved gold medal in the all-around competition. Also, I'm surprised at how valuable Julian Jato has become for Argentina. This is his first major competition as a senior gymnast, and he posted some of his team's highest scores. Funny thing is he's coached by Federico Molinari, who's also part of the team as a gymnast.

Was the silver in women's pairs?

The top 4 will qualify for Pan Am - Uruguay and Peru. The pin total from singles + doubles added together will determine the qualifiers, but that info is not available on the official website. :facepalm:

 

Also Aruba might have an outside chance in sailing?

Yes it was silver in women's pairs for Aruba..

 

As for the chance in sailing, I doubt it, as their best representative is not present.

Its impossible to follow.

 

This results site seems to be a trend for south american competitions as it was the same for South American Youth Games and Bolivarian Games last year. Really hard to follow these competitions.

Sure she's still a medal chance, but combat sports are often too dramatic, as a little mistake could cost her a medal in a knock-out draw.

Just because Argentina was "bad" in one sport it doesn't mean it will be in others.

Is one of the most important sports for Argentina and the result is a complete disaster, of course im talking about the medal count only.

Because Central America has two other Games: 1) the Central American Games and 2) the Central American and Caribbean Games. I'm all in for the inclusion of Trinidad and Tobago, though. Cycling, field hockey and athletics would be a lot more exciting.

The women's team from Brazil in artistic gymnastics is allegedly having trouble with the altitude. It looks like they will not perform full difficulty tomorrow, which opens up a very interesting battle for gold in the all-around. Also, Flávia Saraiva will probably not perform on floor, so I believe Argentina's Dominici has a big chance to win gold, and I'll be super happy if this actually happens.
