INDIANAPOLIS, AUG. 22 -- Sabrina Mar surprised national champion Kristie Phillips for the Pan American Games gold medal as they led the United States to a sweep in the all-around women's gymnastics competition today. Phillips took the silver and Kelly Garrison-Steves the bronze.

International gymnastics rules allow a nation to win all medals in an event, unlike most Pan Am sports.

Mar, 17, of Huntington Beach, Calif., set a Games record with 77.975 points. She broke the mark of 77.21 set by American Doris Fuchs in 1963 and became the United States' first all-around women's winner at the Pan Am Games since Ann Carrin in 1975.

Phillips, 15, of Baton Rouge, La., who fell from the balance beam for a second straight routine to end her gold medal chances, finished with 77.363. Garrison-Steves, 20, of Altus, Okla., had 77.30 as the top three Americans surpassed the previous record.

Mar's floor routine, to Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA," earned a 9.875. She got the same mark for her double layout with a full twist on the vault.

"This has given me a great boost of confidence, knowing I can hit {all the routines} assures me I will do well in the world championships {in the Netherlands in October}," Mar said.

"It's given me a good lesson," said Phillips. "I gave up too quickly."

Phillips fell from the balance beam after a back flip and received her lowest score of the competition, 9.35. Mar, who scored a 9.70 on the beam, was preparing for her uneven bars routine and did not notice Phillips' fall. Mar scored a 9.75 on the beam to clinch the competition.

Entering today's routines at the Hoosier Dome, Mar led because her individual score was the highest in earlier team competition. All-around totals combined half of a gymnast's score in the team competition with today's results.

Gymnastics continues Sunday with individual competitions.

Cuba, boosted by seven golds in the next-to-last day of the 16-day games, passed Canada for second place in the overall medals count. The United States led with 352 medals, including 162 gold, 113 silver and 77 bronze. Cuba had 164 medals through eight finals Saturday, with 69 gold. Canada was four medals behind Cuba.

The United States gained a bronze medal when shooter Greg Appleton of Coppell, Tex., officially moved up, replacing Bernardo Ocando of Venezuela, who failed a drug test.

In an earlier match for third place, Francisco Lins scored on a power play with 2:17 left in the final quarter, lifting Brazil over Canada, 5-4, for the bronze.

In the final game, Cuba and the United States displayed outstanding defense, with eight of the 10 total goals scored when one side had an extra player advantage because of fouls.

Bergeson, 26, of Newport Beach, Calif., finished with 12 goals in six games. Jody Campbell, who had the first U.S. goal in the opening period, had 10 during the Games.

The final game was tied six times before Collins' block put the United States ahead, 10-9. Caren Kemner put the U.S. team ahead, 11-9, before Brazil gained a side out. Angela Rock scored the winning point with an ace to end the 2-hour 24-minute match.
