(9 votes, average 4.56 out of 5)

McKayla Maroney won two more gold medals in event finals as the U.S. women swept the Pan American Gymnastics Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The U.S. women completed their sweep Sunday as the Pan American Gymnastics Championships concluded in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Following a team victory and all-around win by Kyla Ross on Friday, the team of U.S. juniors flexed their dominance in the region by sweeping the apparatus finals.

McKayla Maroney, coached by Galina Marinova and Artur Akopyan, won both women's vault (Yurchenko 2 1/2 and layout Podkopayeva) and floor exercise (Arabian double front; tucked full-in; 1 1/2 to 2 1/2; double tuck).

Gabrielle Douglas of Excalibur Gymnastics in Virginia Beach won uneven bars (Tkatchev; full-in). New York's Sabrina Vega won balance beam (front aerial, ff layout; front tuck; switch leap, back pike; ff, ff double pike).

Gymnasts from four nations divided the men's apparatus gold medals. Two members of the first-place U.S. team, Glen Ishino (pommel horse) and Alex Buscaglia (high bar), took individual titles. All-around champion Daniel Corral won parallel bars for Mexico, and teammate Santiago Lopez won floor exercise.

"I'm happy for giving Mexico another medal and that we ended our participation in the Pan American Championships with two golds," Corral said.

Venezuela's Regulo Carmona won still rings. Chile's Tomas Gonzalez won the vault title after losing the floor exercise gold by half a tenth.

The competition served as the qualification for the XVI Pan American Games, to take place in Guadalajara in 2011. On the women's side, the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia and Cuba qualified full teams. The U.S., Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Argentina qualified full men's teams.
