Twelve U.S. men and women will be in Santiago, Chile, to kick off artistic competition at the 2023 Pan American Games October 21-25.
Less than two weeks after the 2023 FIG Artistic World Championships in Antwerp, Belgium, Team USA is back on the world stage in Chile for the quadrennial Pan Am Games. Comprising the women’s roster are Olympic silver medalist Jordan Chiles; 2021 World Championships all-around bronze medalist Kayla DiCello; 2023 U.S. floor exercise runner up and Winter Cup champion Kaliya Lincoln; 2023 Winter Cup and Core Hydration Classic uneven bars champion Zoe Miller; and 2023 Pan American Championships all-around, balance beam and team gold medalist Tiana Sumanasekera. Evelynn Lowe, Nola Matthews and Alicia Zhou were selected as non-traveling replacement athletes for the event.
U.S. competitors on the men’s side include 2019 Pan Am Games team silver medalist and parallel bars bronze medalist Cameron Bock, three-time NCAA team champion Curran Phillips, 2021 pommel horse World champion and two-time NCAA champion Stephen Nedoroscik, five-time U.S. champion Donnell Whittenburg, and 2022 U.S. and NCAA parallel bars silver medalist Colt Walker. Riley Loos was named as a non-traveling replacement athlete for the men’s team.
Originally selected to the men’s Pan American Games team in August, Shane Wiskus sustained an injury in training and has been replaced in the competition by Phillips.
Americans Katelyn Jong and Vahe Petrosyan also will compete in Santiago as individual qualifiers, earning each spot by winning all-around gold in their respective divisions at the 2021 Junior Pan American Games.
