    Twice she beat the host nation’s Gremlis Arvelo, overcoming the Venezuelan at the semi-final stage of the Junior Girls’ Singles competition and in the final of the Cadet Girls’ Singles event. Revenge
    Victory over Gremilis Arvelo in the Cadet Girls’ Singles competition was victory over the no.2 seed and it was the same in the Junior Girls’ Singles competition where Ecuador’s Tania Almendariz was the final victim.

    The win over the Ecuadorian was somewhat a revenge result; Tania Almendariz had been the only player to inflict a defeat on the Brazilian having recorded a four games victory in the Girls’ Team event.

    Result
    At the semi-final stage of the Junior Girls’ Singles competition, Caroline Kumahara defeated Gremlis Arvelo 11-7, 11-7, 7-11, 11-6, 11-9 before defeating Tania Almendariz 11-5, 11-8, 2-11, 11-6, 11-4.

    In the counterpart quarter-final, Tania Almendariz had recorded a six games win over Caroline Kumahara’s colleague, Karina Hayama; whilst in the same stage in the Cadet Girls’ Singles competition, Gremlis Arvelo had accounted for Trinidad and Tobago’s Catherine Spicer.

    Gold for the Host Nation
    No gold in the singles events for the host nation but that was not to be the situation in the doubles events.

    Roxy Gonzalez and Marianna Inaudi combined to win the Girls’ Doubles event beating Karina Hayama and Caroline Kiumahara in the final, whilst in the Cadet Girls’ Doubles competition it was success foir Gremlis Arvelo and Winberly Montero.

    They beat Peru’s janina Nieto and Catherine Spicer of Trinidad and Tobago to secure gold.
