Ross Leads U.S. to Victory at Pan Am Championships
(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Junior national champion Kyla Ross led the U.S. to first place Friday at the Pan American Gymnastics Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico.

U.S. junior champion Kyla Ross topped teammate Sabrina Vega and Venezula's Jessica Lopez for the all-around title Friday at the Pan American Gymnastics Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Ross led a team of juniors to a 232.030 for a comfortable victory over Canada (213.463) and Brazil (212.994). The U.S. earned the high score on each event, including 60.833 on vault.

Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia and Cuba rounded out the nations which qualified full teams to the XVI Pan American Games, to take place at the same venue in October 2011.

Ross, who won her second U.S. junior title in August, outscored the field on uneven bars (14.566). Vega, who trains with Romanian Olympians Teodora Ungureanu and Sorin Cepoi, earned the top mark on beam (14.800). McKayla Maroney was the top gymnast on both vault (15.483) and floor exercise (14.500).

Host Mexico lost the bronze by just under a point, but leader Elsa Garcia was pleased with fourth place for the team and herself in the all-around.

"It's a good place, but I know I can improve further," Garcia said. "The objective was met. We are very happy because we were fighting on each apparatus."

Competition continues Saturday with the first day of event finals.
