Hungary Wrestling World Championships

Jordan Burroughs celebrates during his bronze-medal match at the World Wrestling Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Jordan Burroughs captured his third Pan-Am Championships title and Colton McCrystal got his first as the pair of ex-Nebraska wrestlers helped Team USA in a record-setting performance Sunday at the Pan-Am Senior Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Team USA won all 10 weight classes, becoming the first team to accomplish the feat that included eight gold medals Sunday. Team USA finished 34-0 over the weekend in men's freestyle and finished with 250 points.

It's Burroughs' fifth Pan-Am gold medal -- if you include the Pan-Am games -- after he defeated Canada's Jevon Balfour in the 74-kilogram (163.1 pounds) final.

McCrystal, 65 kilograms (143.3 pounds), won all three matches by technical fall and outscored opponents 42-7, including 12 in the second period to earn a 12-1 technical fall in the gold medal match.
