Mariana Chiarella of Peru won the silver behind Castro and ahead of Chile's Melany Cabrera.

Colombian Olympian Jorge Giraldo won the parallel bars title over his teammate, all-around champion Jossimar Calvo.

Brazil closed out the competition with golds from Sasaki on high bar and four-time Olympian Daniele Hypolito on women's floor exercise.
