Rising Colombian star Jossimar Calvo won the all-around title and led his team to the gold medal as the 10th South American Games continued in Santiago, Chile.

Held every four years, this year's continental championships includes athletes from 14 nations: — Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela — competing in 33 sports. (Venezuela reportedly was ruled ineligible to compete in the gymnastics competition because it did not take part in the 2013 Pan American Gymnastics Championships in December, also held in Santiago.)

Colombia just edged Brazil, 346.700-346.250. Colombia had the top two team scores of the night with an impressive 59.800 on pommel horse (14.825 average) and a massive 61.900 on high bar (15.475 average). Argentina won the bronze with 330.950.

Calvo fell on vault but impressed with the highest score of the competition, 16.100 on parallel bars, to win the all-around gold medal with a total of 88.400. Brazil's Sergio Sasaki (86.750) won the silver ahead of another Colombian gymnast, Carlos Calvo (no relation to Jossimar), who scored 84.900.

Chilean Olympian Tomas Gonzalez — the flagbearer for the host nation during these South American Games Opening Ceremonies — qualified first on floor exercise and second on vault behind Sasaki. Olympic still rings champion Arthur Zanetti (Brazil) led his best event, while Calvo led both parallel bars and high bar. Another Colombian, Jhonny Muñoz, was on top on parallel bars.

Competition continues Monday with the first day of apparatus finals.
