Medal Summary - 2015 Pan American Games

The 2015 Pan American Games have come and gone, and the biggest winners were Mexico and the USA. Mexico won four gold medals: Women's Singles (Paola Longoria), Women's Doubles (Longoria & Samantha Salas), Women's Team (Longoria & Salas) and Men's Team (Alvaro Beltran, Daniel De La Rosa & Javier Moreno), while the USA won two gold: Men's Singles (Rocky Carson) and Men's Doubles (Jansen Allen & Jose Rojas).

The four Mexican gold medals were repeats from four years ago in Guadalajara, as was the USA's gold in Men's Singles. But Mexico won Men's Doubles four years ago, while that went to the USA this year.

Eight countries won medals in Guadalajara, but only six did in Toronto. Argentina won two silver medals this year, but none in Guadalajara. However, the player responsible for the Argentine medals - Maria Jose Vargas - played for Bolivia four years ago, winning them two bronze medals.

Bolivia won a silver and two bronze medals despite losing its only medalist from four years ago, so that's an improvement. Canada also improved its medal haul, as they won three bronze medals on home soil one more than four years ago. Ecuador performed the same as four years ago: they won three bronze medals in Guadalajara and did so again in Toronto.

Chile, Colombia and Venezuela won medals in Guadalajara, but failed to do so in Toronto.

The 2019 Pan Am Games will be Lima, Peru.
