Actually two NOC's wont qualify in women's competition.

Only 12 can qualify through the team event... which opens up 2 extra slots.

Well, it will all depend if the Dominican Republic is counted as a team... they have 3 competitors, so according to current rules, if every gymnast competes, then they're team 13.

Pan Am Entry lists: https://thegymter.net/2018/09/11/pan-ams-begin-this-week-in-lima/

Sad for Aruba :(

All countries competing in the men's/women's competitions will qualify for 2019 Pan Am Games.

Congrats :CAY for qualifying first athlete!

Nice! Thank you!

One gymnast from the Cayman Islands competed at the 2015 Pan American Games. She even made it to the all-around final!

She also trained in Toronto and coach is also from Toronto and I got to say hello to her after the all around final as she was in demand from some of the media

Any predictions based on the entry lists? I think Mexico is in danger of not qualifying a full team, especially in the men's side.

My predictions for the top 8 teams:

Men's teams: USA, Colombia, Canada, Brazil, Cuba, Argentina, Peru and the eight team is hard to predict... maybe Puerto Rico or Mexico.
Women's teams: USA, Brazil, Canada, Argentina, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Colombia and Cuba.

 

Also, I strongly believe Dominican Republic will not count as a women's team. There must be 4 to 5 gymnasts to compose a team according to FIG's rules.

Thanks for clarifying that up. But slots 9 to 13 say "team event" for 2019 Pan Am Games, but only award 2 slots per country, so it's a bit confusing.

"In the team finals, three gymnasts compete in each event with all scores counting."

Yes, but I remember that Brazil sent three gymnasts to the London Olympics and they counted as individuals. Even if all of them wanted to perform on all apparatus, they would still count as individuals. At the Olympics, a team consists of 5 gymnasts, 4 of them perform on a given apparatus in qualifications, and the 3 best score counts (5-4-3 format). It looks like the organization decided to stretch things a bit for the Pan Ams. Uruguay only performed with three male gymnasts and they did indeed count their scores as a team score. So, it means that the Dominican Republic will also count as a team.

Which is sad because now one of the smaller countries will lose a quota :(

What if one of the three DR ladies do not compete in an event. DO they lose team status?
