The United States made some big moves on night 2 of the 2019 Pan American Games, with the nation adding a massive 11 medals to its tally in just one session.
Entering night 2, the U.S. equaled Brazil with 3 golds apiece, but the stars n’ stripes broke through to now hold a total of 9, courtesy of winners Claire Rasmus, Kendyl Stewart, Tom Shields, Alex Walsh, Daniel Carr and the mixed 400m free relay.
Further adding to the day 2 haul was the triple 1-2 finish for the United States. Behind Rasmus’ 200m free victory in a time of 1:58.64, teammate Meaghan Raab clinched the silver in 1:58.70. Then in the women’s 200m back, Alex Walsh took gold in 2:08.30, while Isabelle Stadden wrangled up silver just .09 later in 2:08.39.
The final 1-2 punch for the Americans came in the men’s 200m back, with Daniel Carr topping the podium in 1:58.13, while Nicholas Alexander produced 1:58.30 for silver.
Additional individual winners were represented by Stewart in the 100m fly with her podium-topping time of 58.49, while Shields rebounded big-time from his 200m fly with a gold in the 100m fly sprint in a time of 51.59.
Brazil did get on the board with a gold on the night, however, courtesy of Fernando Scheffer‘s gold in the men’s 200m free in 1:46.68, the only sub-1:47 swimmer of the field. Behind him was teammate Breno Correia to give the nation a 1-2 finish of its own.
