win gold at Pan American Games
August 4, 2019
Caroline Dolehide and Usue Arconada won the gold medal in women's doubles at the Pan American Games Saturday in Lima, Peru, defeating Paraguay's Veronica Cepede-Royg and Montserrat Gonzalez, 6-0, 6-4.
The 20-year-olds are the first American gold medalists in women's doubles at the Pan Am Games since 1991, when Pam Shriver and Donna Faber achieved the feat in Havana, Cuba.
A day after winning doubles gold, Dolehide (pictured above) took home the silver medal in women's singles, falling to Argentina's Nadia Podoroska, 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), in the gold-medal match.
By reaching the singles final, Dolehide gave herself an outside shot at qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, as she'd earn a spot on the American team if four U.S. women don't earn direct acceptance via ranking on June 8, 2020.
