Pan American Games 2023: Artistic Gymnastics: Preview, Full Schedule, and How to Watch Live

Fresh from her impressive five-medal performance at the 2023 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Antwerp, Belgium, Brazilian gymnast Rebeca Andrade is gearing up for one final competition this season at the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago, Chile.

Rebeca Andrade will be joined by her compatriot Flavia Saraiva, who, like Andrade, played a pivotal role in the historic silver medal-winning team in Antwerp. Saraiva also earned her first individual medal, a bronze, on the floor exercise.

Headlining the event is Jordan Chiles, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medalist and the 2022 World team champion, competing internationally for the first time this season. The U.S. team, led by Chiles, will vie for the team gold against Brazil, with the U.S. having secured the last five consecutive victories, and Brazil’s silver medal in the 2007 Games as their best finish at the Pan American Games.

If Rebeca Andrade chooses to participate in the all-around event, she will be the favorite for gold, having claimed the title at the 2022 World Championships and finishing as the runner-up to Simone Biles this year. However, if she opts out, Jordan Chiles and Flavia Saraiva will have a strong chance of claiming gold.

In the men’s competition, the United States, which won bronze at the Worlds, and Canada, who secured a full-team Olympic quota spot for Paris 2024 after a brilliant showing in Antwerp, are expected to be the frontrunners. Brazilian gymnast Diogo Soares and Canada’s Rene Cournoyer, who placed 10th and 12th, respectively, in the all-around at the Worlds, are strong contenders for the individual podium. American gymnast Colt Walker, who earned the highest score in the all-around at the U.S. nationals, is also in the mix.

The Santiago 2023 Pan American Games offer Paris 2024 quotas, with the highest eligible athletes in the men’s and women’s all-around securing a spot. Athletes from the United States and Canada, among others, are ineligible for these spots as they have already secured the maximum number of quotas for the upcoming Summer Games.
