The Brazilian men won their first gymnastics team title Tuesday as the Pan American Games continued in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Led by Sergio Sasaki and 2011 world medalists Diego Hypolito and Artur Zanetti, Brazil defeated defending champion Puerto Rico by 1.25 in the second subdivision. The U.S, which competed in the first subdivision, won the bronze.

Hypolito, a two-time world champion on floor exercise, clinched the gold medal for Brazil on his best event. He failed to stick most of his tumbling (whip, Arabian double pike mount; triple twist dismount) but his performance had the Brazilian team celebrating on the side. The gold marked the best international performance to date by the Brazilian men, who at previous Pan Am Games won silvers in 2003 and 2007 and bronzes in 1987 and 1979. Rio de Janeiro, site of the 2007 Pan Am Games, will play host to the 2016 Olympic Games.

Puerto Rico had the top team totals on pommel horse and high bar, but struggled on parallel bars (sixth). The U.S. men outscored the field on still rings, but gave up 4 points to Puerto Rico on pommel horse.

Sasaki led the all-around qualification, topping 2008 Olympians Jorge Hugo Giraldo (Colombia) and Luis Rivera (Puerto Rico).

Competition continues Wednesday with the all-around finals for both women and men.
