Argentina clinched the South and Central American Men's Handball Championship title by narrowly defeating Brazil in Maringá.
The hosts were the better team in the first half at Ginásio Chico Neto, edging it 13-12.
Pan American Games champions Argentina came back in the second half however, managing to secure a 25-24 victory.
They had also won the Pan American Men's Handball Championship in 2018, the last edition of that event before North and South America were split up within the sport's governance.
Uruguay got past Paraguay 34-20 to claim third place and the bronze medal.
