Gymnasts from four countries won titles Saturday at the Junior Pan American Championships in Guatemala City.

The U.S. dominated on Friday — winning the team titles and sweeping both men's and women's all-around medals — but its only gold medal on Saturday came from Jordyn Wieber on uneven bars.

Canada's Dominique Pegg and Peng Peng Lee placed first and second, respectively, on women's vault.

On uneven bars, Wieber, second all-around, topped all-around gold medalist Mattie Larson to take the title.

Brazilian Arthur Zanetti won gold medals on both floor exercise and still rings. Colombia's Fabian Meza won the gold on pommel horse.

The U.S. men won three silver medals: Alexy Bilozertchev on floor exercise and pommel horse and Glen Ishino on still rings.

South American powerhouse Brazil was the biggest winner on Saturday, with six medals total to the United States' five.

Competition concludes Sunday in Guatemala with the final day of event finals.
