    Chile’s 18 year old Felipe Olivares and Paraguay’s 17 year old Sandy Gavilan won the respective Boys’ and Girls’ Singles titles at the South American Junior Championships which concluded in the Peruvian city of Chiclayo on Tuesday 4th May 2010.

    Seeded no.1, Olivares defeated Peru’s Javier Li Davelouis in the opening round before accounting for a trio of Brazilians to clinch the title.

    At the quarter-final stage he ousted Eric Jouti and continued his path to victory by overcoming Gustavo Souza and second seeded, Danilo Toma.
    Danilo Toma
    Winner of the Boys’ Singles title one week earlier at the ITTF Junior Circuit event in Venezuela, Danilo Toma defeated Argentina’s Juan Daher followed by the Chilean duo of Marcelo Fernandez and Manuel Moya to reach the final.

    Path to Final
    Success for the top seed in the Boys’ Singles event but in the Girls’ Singles event it was success for the no.2 seed.

    Sandy Gavilan defeated top seeded Peruvian Angela Mori at the final hurdle, having earlier overcome Venezuela’s Marianna Inaudi, Chile’s Catherine Low and Roxi Gonzalez, also from Venezuela, to book her place in the final.

    Closest call en route to gold for Sandy Gavilan was her quarter-final duel with Roxi Gonzalez, a contest which went the full seven games distance; otherwise she was never seriously troubled.

    Impressive Peruvian
    However, even more impressive en route to the final was the performance of Angela Mori.

    She overcame Brazilians Amanda Marques and Katia Kawai in impressive style before recording an equally impressive success against Ecuador’s Tania Almendariz.

    Brazilians Outstanding
    Gold for Chile and Paraguay in the junior events whilst in the cadet competitions it was Brazil who captured the top prize on both occasions.

    Hugo Calderano won the Cadet Boys’ Singles crown beating colleague Victor Ishiy in the final with Argentina’s Fermin Tenti and Julio Li Davelouis, the semi-finalists whilst in the Cadet Girls’ Singles competition, the top prize went to Caroline Kumahara.

    The winner of both the Girls’ and Cadet Girls’ Singles crowns at the Venezuelan Junior Open in late April, Caroline Kumahara added to her growing collection of trophies. She defeated Peru’s Francesca Vargas in the final; Uruguay’s Maria Lorenzotti and Valentina Lertora were the beaten semi-finalists.

    Hugo Calderano
    Victory for Caroline Kumahara in the Cadet Girls’ Singles competition and with Hugo Calderano in the Cadet Mixed Doubles competition where they beat Argentina’s Fermin Tenti and Virginia Valdez to clinch gold. However, for the talented Brazilian it was not to be a full house of titles.

    Cadet Doubles Events
    In the Cadet Girls’ Doubles event, she had to settle for bronze in partnership with Bruna Alexandre; gold went to the host nation in the guise of Valentina Lertora and Francesca Vargas with Venezuela’s Gremlis Arvelo and Francesca Vargas, the runners up.

    Similarly, Hugo Calderano, who like Caroline Kumahara had clinched team gold earlier in the week, fell just one event short of a full house. In the Cadet Boys Doubles event, he had to settle for silver in partnership with Victor Ishiy.

    The pair experienced defeat in the gold medal match against Argentina’s Fermin Tenti and Diego Teplitzky.

    Meanwhile, at junior level; honours were shared in the doubles competitions.

    Honours Shared
    Brazil’s Danilo Toma and Gustavo Souza won the Boys’ Doubles title beating Chile’s Matias Contreras and Felipe Olivares in the final, with Peru’s Angela Mori and Nadia Quiñonez clinching the Girls’ Doubles crown; in the gold medal duel they defeated Paraguay’s Sandy Gavilan and Lucero Ovelar.

    Doubles titles for Brazil and Peru and there was one for Paraguay; Sebastian Aguirre partnered Sandy Gavilan to victory, the pair beating Ecuador’s Rodrigo Tapia and Tania Almendariz in the final.
