Brazil won the men's and women's gold medals in beach volleyball at the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago.

It was a perfect return to the top for Ana Patricia Ramos and Duda Lisboa, defeated in the World Championships final earlier this month in Mexico.

Ramos and Lisboa defeated Canada's Brandie Wilkerson and Melissa Humana-Paredes, who had carried Canada's flag at the Opening Ceremony of Santiago 2023, 22-20, 18-21 in the final at Peñalolen Park.

The duo won the World Championships last year and has a Summer Youth Olympic title to their names from Nanjing 2014.

Despite the loss, Wilkerson and Humana-Paredes scripted history by winning Canada's first women's beach volleyball medal at the Games.

Corinne Quiggle and Sarah Murphy of the United States won bronze, getting the better of Ana Maria Gallay and Fernanda Gabriela Pereyra of Argentina 21-18, 21-10.

Later in the day, Andre Loyola and George Souto added to the Brazilian tally by winning the men's tournament.

They worked hard to come out on top against Cuba's Jorge Alayo and Noslen Diaz 21-12, 19-21, 15-13.

Hosts Chile had something to cheer for when Grimalt cousins Esteban and Marco defeated Americans Logan Webber and Hagen Smith for the bronze.

The three-setter saw Esteban and Marco triumph 21-14, 18-21, 15-12.

Today also saw medals being awarded in cycling, with Colombia winning three of the five titles on offer at the Velódromo Peñalolén.

In the women's madison, Lina Rojas and Lina Marcela Hernández combined for the country's first gold, scoring 46 points.

Four points behind were Mexico's 2019 Pan American Games bronze medallist Lizbeth Salazar and Antonieta Gaxiola.

Chloe Patrick and Colleen Gulick of the US managed only 30 points but it was enough to fetch them the bronze medal.

Mexicans Fernando Nava and Ricardo Peña Salas were far superior in the men's madison, winning by almost double the points in 90.

Second place went to Colombia but Lima 2019 team pursuit silver medallist Jordan Parra and world scratch silver medallist Juan Arango finished second on 46 points.

Once again, the US bagged the final podium spot when Colby Lange and Grant Koontz scored 43 points.

Lima 2019 keirin champion Martha Bayona of Colombia won the women's sprint, pipping Yuli Verdugo of Mexico with Mandy Marquardt of the US taking bronze.

Trinidad and Tobago's defending Pan American Games sprint champion Nicholas Paul settled for silver, while Juan Carlos Ruiz Teran took bronze for Mexico.

Finally, Canadians were the best in men's team pursuit, when Carson Mattern, Chris Ernst, Sean Richardson and Michael Foley clocked 3min 53.59sec.

The Colombians did enough to get silver when Brayan Sánchez, Jordan Parra, Nelson Soto and Juan Esteban Arango timed 4:02.31.

Brendan Rhim, Colby Lange, Grant Koontz and David Domoske won the fourth bronze for the US in cycling.

Mexico and Guatemala won the only two shooting titles of the day thanks to Carlos Quezada and Jean Pierre Brol Cardenas at the Lo Aguirre Shooting Range.

Neutral athlete Cardenas, with a total score of 43, won the men's trap at the Pan American Games for the second time, 12 after he won gold in Guadalajara.

It was a tight battle that saw Leonel Martínez of Venezueal bag silver only one point behind.

Cardenas' compatriot Hebert Brol, also in neutral capacity, rounded out the podium with a final score of 30 points.

Quezda showed great consistency in the men's 3x20 rifle event, averaging a score of 452.1 points for the title.

He had a lead of nearly three points over American Sherry on 449.5 points, who won the silver medal.

Tokyo 2020 mixed 10 metre air rifle silver medallist Lucas Kozeniesky added another medal for the US, winning bronze in 438.8 points.
