In a perfect day of maximum podiums, the first title on Friday was won by Luciana Osorio in the difficult omnium event, by compiling 149 points and leaving Chile’s Javiera Mansilla (132 points) for second place, while Mexico’s María Fernanda Figueroa finished with bronze with 122 points.

The young Colombian promise Juan Manuel Zapata added his second crown in the continental competition by winning the individual pursuit (3:22:048), for which he had a titanic resistance from the Chilean Ignacio Manbran (3:22:742), while the third place went to the Argentinean Santiago Gruñeiro (3:23.930), winner in his match of the Mexican Marcelo Fabián Garza (3:24.990).

Also with two gold medals on his neck was Miguel Angel Martin, who led the points race with 56 points and won 4 of the 10 sprint races. For the silver medal, the best was Chile’s Vicente Albornoz with 33 and the bronze went to Trinidad and Tobago’s Jadian Neaves with 25 points.

Finally, the always attractive pure speed event left 18-year-old Colombian Stefany Cuadrado with the gold medal, after beating Makaira Wallace of Trinidad and Tobago in two rounds. For the bronze, another Colombian, Mariana Perez defeated Mexico’s Carla Dosamante.

The Pan American Track Championship, junior category, enters its penultimate date this Saturday and it is clear that Colombia’s leadership is almost overwhelming, so it is already the virtually winning nation of the competition.
