Jason Rogers equalled the 100 metres record while Auriyall Scott improved the women's time.

Shane Brathwaite won the men's 110 metres hurdles with a record run of 13.31 seconds. Jamaica's Traves Smikle gave a strong performance in the discus throw, becoming the first athlete to clear sixty metres in the history of the meet. Amanda Bingson added more than four metres to the women's hammer throw record, while Mexico's Abigail Gomez claimed the javelin throw record for the host nation.

The United States was dominant at the competition, winning all but five of the women's titles. Mexico managed to win five gold medals and Canada had the third most wins with four golds. Sixteen nations reached the medal table
