RIO DE JANEIRO, July 13 (Xinhua) -- Latin America and the Caribbean are seeking to improve on the results they obtained four years ago at the Olympic Games in London, where the total the region won 58 medals.

Three of these medals were gold - gymnastics with Arthur Zanetti, judo with Sarah Menezes and women's volleyball.

Cuba and Brazil were the only countries from Latin America and the Caribbean to win more than one gold medal in London. Other countries from the region returned home with one gold medal - Argentina, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.


When counting up all the medals, Colombia came third in the region with eight medals. Mariana Pajon's gold medal in BMXing was added to the three silvers in cycling, weightlifting and athletics and four bronze medals in judo, taekwondo, wrestling and cycling.


With these medals, Colombia achieved its best result ever in Olympic history, beating the three medals they won in Munich 1972.


Mexico was the fourth best country in the region in terms of total medals with seven: a gold in men's soccer after defeating Brazil, three silvers in diving and archery and three bronze medals also in diving and archery as well as taekwondo.


Argentina's Sebastian Crismanich managed to win one gold medal in taekwondo while the Dominican Republic athlete Felix Sanchez won the 400 meters hurdle and Venezuela's Ruben Limardo took home the gold in the individual epee fencing competition.
