PARC - Mexico & Bolivia in women's doubles final at 2012 Pan American Championships

Mexico and Bolivia will face off in the women's doubles final at the XXV Pan American Championships in Temuco, Chile. Mexicans Paola Longoria and Samantha Salas - top seeds and defending chmapions defeated Colombians Cristina Amaya and Carolina Gomez, 15-0, 15-3 in the semi-finals.

In the other semi-final, the Bolivian team of Jenny Daza and Carola Loma beat Canadians Christine Richardson and Jennifer Saunders, 15-12, 15-11. The Canadians served everything to Daza - on the right side, and the Bolivians to Richardson - also on the right side, but they switched to serving to both Canadians, and found the strategy to be effective enough to produce the victory.

The final will be Saturday at noon (Chile time) and will streamed live via the Pan American Racquetball Confederation (PARC) website.
