Team USA Results from 2015 Pan Am Championships and Open

Congrats to the athletes at the 2015 Pan American Cadet and Poomsae Championships and at the 2015 Pan American Open in Aguascalientes, Mexico from September 9-13, 2015!

At the Cadet and Junior Championships, Team USA earned an incredible 13 medals in the 12 divisions we contested, including an impressive 10 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze medals. Some late changes by the organizing committee meant that individual divisions were separated by Dan rank. While unexpected, this division of competitors allowed Team USA to have more opportunities to earn gold and they took full advantage.

At the Open, our senior Team USA members did a fantastic job in some very deep divisions that included some world medalists and world champions from Mexico. We had great depth from the US, showing multiple medals in many divisions, earning 9 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze medals across 15 divisions at the Open. Including all USA athletes, we earned an impressive 18 gold, 11 silver and 11 bronze medals.

Congratulations and great job to team USA!
