American Bridgette Caquatto and Colombian Jossimar Calvo won the all-around titles Wednesday as the Pan American Games continued in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Caquatto scored 55.875 to give the U.S. women their seventh consecutive all-around victory at the Pan Am Games, topping Guatemala's Ana Sofía Gómez (55.425) Canada's Kristina Vaculik (54.775).

"This is just amazing," Caquatto said. "It feels just as amazing as it did the other day when the whole team won first too. I'm just so happy."

Gómez, the top qualifier, won the first Pan Am medal for Guatemala since Luisa Portacarrero in 1991.

"Women are capable and can excel in sports," said Gómez, a 2010 Youth Olympian. "I thank Guatemala and this medal is for Guatemala."

Peru's Sandra Collantes left the Nisson Complex on a stretcher after a frightening fall from uneven bars, but was released from the hospital after an MRI revealed no serious injuries. Collantes, a Peruvian-American, trains under Argentinian-born coach Gustavo Moure at Excalibur Gymnastics in Virginia Beach and won vault in the Senior B division at the 2011 Junior Olympic Nationals in Long Beach.

In the men's competition, Calvo and Jorge Hugo Giraldo went 1-2 for Colombia. Calvo, just 17, is barely half the age of his veteran teammate, 32.

Two-time world floor exercise finalist Tomás González (Chile) won the bronze.

Top qualifier Sergio Sasaki (Brazil) withdrawn from the competition after two events. Sasaki, who led Brazil to the team gold on Tuesday, reportedly aggravated a previous foot injury during the vault warmup.

Competition continues Thursday with the first day of event finals.
