Venezuela Dominates ALBA Games with 9 Golds
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The host nation captured nine of 14 gold medals at the 4th ALBA Games, held July 19-21 in Maracaibo, Venezuela.

The Venezuelan gymnasts grabbed both team titles and five of the six all-around medals at the Saurin Galué Gymnasium.

2008 Olympian Jessica Lopez led a Venezuelan sweep of the women's all-around medals. Lopez scored hit three events (14.400 on vault, 14.300 on uneven bars and 14.000 on floor exercise) to easily take the title despite a missed beam routine (12.650).

Jhoanny Sotillo (54.400) was second over Eliana Gonzalez (52.650).

In the men's all-around, Adickxon Trejo (85.900) topped Colombian Deyvi Castellanos (83.400) and fellow Venezuelan Carlos Carbonell (83.100).

Venezuela picked up half the titles in event finals. Lopez won uneven bars and teammate Fanny Briceño won balance beam.

Lopez scratched the final on floor exercise, which went to Elid Mayerli Helwigg (Ecuador).

Trejo won both pommel horse and high bar, and still rings standout Regulo Carmona won his specialty.

Cuba won gold medals in finals from Dovelis Torres (women's vault), Carlos Kindelan (men's vault) and Carlos Campaña (parallel bars). Audrys Nin won the floor exercise title for the Dominican Republic.

The Bolivarian Alternative for Latin America and the Caribbean (ALBA) is a social-leaning economic and cultural alliance among eight nations in South America and the Caribbean. The first ALBA Games took place in Cuba in 2006.
