Canada got 2nd in the women's gymnastics competition in the 2003 Pan Am Games, but this year they had a young team: Brittany Rogers (reigning Canadian junior champion) Stephanie Desjardins-Labelle Peng-Peng Lee Ti Liu Charlotte Mackie Emma Willis Brazil women's team: Jade Barbosa Khiuani Dias Daiane dos Santos Daniele Hypolito Ana Claudia Silva Lais Souza Brazil men's team: Luis Augusto Anjos Diego Hypolito Danilo Nogueira Mosiah Rodrigues Victor Rosa Adan Santos Brazilian women's team got 3rd in the 2003 Pan Am Games, and this year at the 2007 Pan Am Games got 2nd. The Brazilian men got 2nd in 2003 and in the 2007 Pan Am Games. Canada's men's team got 7th again, their team: Peter Andersen Jayd Lukenchuk (reigning junior national champion) Pat McElroy A.J. Rayment Hugh Smith Jared Walls. Marta Karolyi talks about the advantage Brazil has for the competition being at home: [quote]"It will be a pretty tough competition, because some of those countries have improved and have a great ambition," Karolyi told IG. "Actually, the host country has a little bit of advantage of being home and having all the Latin countries judging. So it will be a tough competition, but we'll try to put together a good team and hope everything will go fine." [/quote] You can argue that there is some advantage with having the home crowd, and judges, but talent is talent. quote from "Americans Aim High For Pan American Games" - http://intlgymnast.com/news/2007/july/071107_panam.html
