The multi-time world and Olympic champion, Jennifer Valente, continued giving prestige to the Pan American Track Championships held in Los Angeles, where on Thursday she led with her second gold the U.S. delegation’s assault to the top of the medals table, by now compiling four titles, ahead of the Mexican delegation that remains with two gold medals.

Valente dominated the elimination race on the second day of the competition, ahead of two stars such as Colombia’s Juliana Londoño and Mexico’s Yareli Acevedo. “This is one of the races that I like and motivates me the most. There was good rivalry and in the end my experience won,” said the winner to the media accredited to the event.

The team pursuit also ended with the same dual meet between the United States and Colombia. The triumph corresponded to the northern quartet formed by David Domonoske, Anders Johnson, Grant Koontz and Brendan Rhim, who were ahead from the first kilometer to the Colombian representation formed by Juan Esteban Arango, Bryan Steve Gómez, Jordan Arley Parra and Brayan Stiven Sánchez. In the bronze medal, Canada was better than Chile.

In this same specialty, but among the women, the final was a duel between the U.S. and Canadian teams, with the victory going to the locals Olivia Cummins, Emily Ehrlich, Colleen Gulick and Bethany Ingram, who were more than 4 seconds ahead at the finish line. Mexico eliminated Chile for third place and won its second medal of the day.

Finally, the only title that did not go to the American riders was the men’s keirin, in which no one was faster than Paul Nicholas from Trinidad and Tobago. He was followed in second and third place by the Colombian Kevin Quintero and another Trinidadian Kwesi Browne.

The finals of the points race and the individual pursuit for men, as well as the omnium and pure sprint for women are scheduled for Friday. By countries, the United States now leads with four gold medals, followed by Mexico with two.
