Cuba – typically one of the strongest teams in the region – was absent from the contest, but the quality of the performances on show remained high regardless. Among the stand-out competitors of the competition, Churandy Martina played a part in all his country's medals, winning their two golds with a 100 metres/200 metres double and anchoring the men's 4 x 100 metres relay team to the bronze medal. Beverly Ramos excelled on home turf: she won the 5000 metres and 3000 metres steeplechase races with Games record times and also took the bronze in the 1500 metres. Juan Luis Barrios of Mexico completed a 1500/5000 m double while his compatriot Juan Carlos Romero won 5000 silver and the 10,000 metres gold. Rosibel García of Colombia retained her 1500 m title from 2006, but also added the 800 m gold to her tally. Venezuelan athlete Eduard Villanueva came close to the same feat in the men's events, but was runner-up over the longer distance.
