Andrea Palafox and Edson Ramirez have clinched a 10th shooting gold medal for Mexico on the final day of the sport at the Central American and Caribbean Games in San Salvador.

The duo faced off against neutral athletes Polymaría Alvarado and Douglas Oliva in the mixed teams 10 metres air rifle final at the Polígono Estadio Mágico.

Guatemalans Alvarado and Oliva were competing under the Centro Caribe Sports flag due to the suspension of their National Olympic Committee.

The Mexicans prevailed 16-10 over 13 rounds mainly down to a blistering start that saw them win four of the opening five rounds.

Earlier in the day, Puerto Rico's Yarimar Mercado and Gustavo Enriquez sealed the bronze medal in the discipline as they denied another neutral pairing in the form of Jazmine Matta and Donalson Muñoz.

It was a commanding performance as they cruised to a 17-9 victory.

The scores were level at 9-9 after the ninth round but an eight-point spree saw them surge to the third-place finish.

It ended seven days of shooting events that saw Mexico dominate the competition.

Cuba's five titles put them second while Puerto Rico, El Salvador, and the neutral teams all picked up one gold medal each.

Mexico also triumphed on the last day of the bowling events in both the men's and women's quintets competitions.

Paola Limon, Lilia Robles, Sandra Gongora, Iliana Lomeli, and Miriam Zetter combined first in the women's for a score of 2,809 points.

This gave them a comfortable lead over runners-up Colombia and the neutral athletes in third with 2,478 and 2,423 points, respectively.

Mario Quintero, Ricardo Lecuona, Humberto Vazquez, Enrique Gutierrez, Jesus Lecona, and Gonzalo Hurtado then secured gold for Mexico in the men's event with 2,671 points.

It was a much closer affair as they only edged Puerto Rico by three points for the title while Colombia rounded out the top three on 2,547.

Mexico lead the overall table with a total of 235 medals, including 101 gold.

That puts them a long way ahead of Colombia, winners of 148 medals, 51 of them gold.
