Bronze The Pan American Games Organizing Committee decided to revoke the Bronze medal obtained by the Mexican Women's gymnastics team (Marisela Arizmendi Torres, Maricela Cantú Mata, Yesenia Estrada Martínez, Érika Mariene García Aguiñaga, Elsa García Rodríguez Blancas and Yeny Ibarra Valdez);[1][2] Marisela Arizmendi Torres had an accreditation as an official ("As" accreditation) instead of being registered as an athlete ("Ao" accreditation), therefore the PASO Executive Committee decided to revoke the bronze medal and award it to the Canadian Women's team, who came up as 4th during the competition.
