Tigers take home medals at Pan Am Games
Two Missouri athletes took home bronze medals at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, over the weekend.
Roberto Vilches, a member of the Tigers’ track and field team, earned the bronze in the high jump while representing his home country of Mexico on Friday with a clearance of 2.26. The jump fell just under his personal best of 2.27 meters, which he set at the Mizzou Spring Open on April 6.
Also on Friday, Missouri wrestler Jaydin Eierman added to the Tigers medal count by taking the bronze medal at 65 kg. Eierman picked up a 15-4 technical fall win over three-time Junior Pan Am champion Augustin Destribats of Argentina to finish third.
