The Colombian men and Venezuelan women dominated the first two days of competition at the 17th Bolivarian Games, held Tuesday and Wednesday in Lima, Perú.

First established in 1938, the multi-sport event is held every four years in honor of politician and military leader Simón Bolívar (1783-1830) who was key in establishing South America's independence from the Spanish Empire. The Games are open to athletes from the six members of ODEBO (Organización Deportiva Bolivariana): Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.

However, for the first time, athletes from five non-ODEBO nations were able to participate: Chile, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala and Paraguay. In total, more than 4,200 athletes from the 11 nations will take part in 44 sports in and around Trujillo. The gymnastics competition is taking place at Coliseo Eduardo Dibos in Lima.

Two-time Olympian Jessica López led Venezuela to a hefty victory, finishing nearly 10 points ahead of Colombia. The host nation finished further 10 points behind to win the bronze.

López defended her all-around title from the 2009 Bolivarian Games in Sucre, Bolivia, where she won five golds and one bronze (vault). 2012 Olympian Ana Sofía Gómez (Guatemala) won the all-around silver with the high scores on vault (14.833) and balance beam (15.267), but a 12.233 on uneven bars left her more than a point behind López. López' teammate, Ivet Rojas, won the bronze over Peru's Sandra Collantes, who recently committed to compete for Boise State University.

The Colombian men crushed the field, topping Venezuela by nearly 11 points and bronze medalist Chile by nearly 24 points. Colombia also won the team title in Sucre four years ago.

Colombia's Jossimar Calvo and defending Bolivarian champion Jorge Hugo Giraldo finished 1-2 in the all-around as they had at the 2011 Pan American Games. Venezuelan Adickxon Trejo won the all-around bronze.

Competition continues Thursday and Friday with the apparatus finals.
