The 2015 Pan American Games resumed July 22 from Toronto with another day of athletic competition, featuring event finals in waterskiing and wakeboarding, fencing, boxing, and track and field, among other sports. Here’s a look at the overall medal count as of the close of day 13, as posted to the games’ official website.
Thanks in large part to an exceptional day in several track and field events –including a silver medal for Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin in the men’s long jump– as well as both fencing finals, Team USA still leads both the gold and overall medal counts. The nation became the games’ first to cross the 200-medal mark, and completed day 13 with 201 total podium placements, including 76 gold. Second place Canada enters day 14 with 64 gold medals and 173 overall.
In third place with 114 total gold, silver, and bronze placements is Brazil, while Cuba is fourth with 75 and Mexico just a medal behind in fifth place with 74. Colombia ranks sixth with 61 and with 58 top placements, Argentina sits in seventh place. Venezuela rates eighth with 34 and Ecuador is ninth with 24. Closing out the top 10 with 20 medals is Chile.
The Dominican Republic holds 11th place with 14 overall podium placements and Puerto Rico ranks 12th with 10. Ten medals is sufficient to secure 13th place in the standings for Peru, and Guatemala is 14th with eight. Four nations, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Paraguay, and Uruguay follow with three medals apiece, while three additional nations –the Bahamas, Barbados, and El Salvador– are next in line with two each.
The final six nations on the leader board completed day 13 with one medal apiece at the games. They include St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, Honduras, Panama, Bermuda, and St. Kitts and Nevis. For information on how to livestream the 2015 Pan Am Games when they continue on July 23, check ESPN.
