In addition to the seven Championship records which were broken during the three-day event, two South American records were broken: Keila Costa jumped 14.57 m in the women's triple jump while Fábio Gomes da Silva broke the men's pole vault record with a clearance of 5.77 m.[1][2][3] A total of thirteen national records in athletics were broken by medal winning athletes.

Lucimar de Moura of Brazil was the stand out performer in the medals, winning the 100/200 metres double before taking the national team to a gold in the 4×100 metres relay. Felipa Palacios of Colombia took three silver medals in the same events, finishing behind de Moura each time, and also won silver in the 4×400 metres relay. Germán Lauro won both the men's shot put and discus throw events while Elisângela Adriano completed the same feat on the women's side. Hugo Chila won silver in the long jump and triple jump, and Keila Costa scored a long jump silver as well as her triple jump gold.[1][2] In one of the more dramatic moments of the championships, Rosibel García looked set to complete an 800/1500 metres double but she fell in the last 50 m of the 800 m race, allowing 1500 m silver medallist Marian Burnett of Guyana to win the gold.[3]
