Qualification Begins at Pan American Championships
(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The first of two days of qualification took place Thursday as the 2013 Pan American Gymnastics Championships began in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The appparatus-only competition features senior gymnasts from 17 nations across North and South America. (The U.S. gymnasts were absent in advance of the P&G U.S. National Championships next week.)

Canadian Gabriella Douglas was the top qualifier on balance beam, leading three-time Brazilian Olympian Daniele Hypolito and Pan American Games gold medalist Ana Sofia Gomez.

On floor exercise, Hypolito topped Cuba's Dovelis Torres and Puerto Rico's Paula Mejias.

Cuban newcomer Manrique Larduet, who turned 17 on July 7, led qualification on men's vault and parallel bars. Pan American Games all-around champion Jossimar Calvo (Colombia) was the top gymnast on high bar, placing ahead of Puerto Rico's Angel Ramos.

"Everything went like in training," Ramos said. "I focused on my high bar routine, where I've had success this year, so I hope to be on the podium in the final."

Puerto Rico's Alexis Torres qualified to all three finals.

"I felt really good here," he said. "I love having my family and all the fans here supporting me. I came here to work well and show my best. I trained long and hard to get here."

Competition continues Friday with qualification on the remaining events. Finals take place Saturday and Sunday.
