Mexico wins team title at 2014 Pan Am Championships

Mexico finished on top of the overall standings at the XXVII Pan American Racquetball Championships in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, as they were first in both men's and women's competitions winning a total of six medals: gold in both men's and women's doubles and silver and bronze in both men's and women's singles.

Coming second overall was the USA, who had a gold medal performance in men's singles from Jose Rojas and a silver in men's doubles.

Argentina made their best ever showing, finishing third overall with a gold in women's singles from Maria Jose Vargas, a silver in women's doubles and a bronze in men's doubles.

Canada came fourth overall with two bronze medals, and then Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia had one bronze medal each.

The results reinforce the strength of Mexican racquetball, and came without the current women's World Champion Paola Longoria.
