Tom Scott, a 2008 Jesuit graduate, won a gold medal in karate over the weekend at the Pan American Games in Toronto.

Scott, 25, defeated Alexander Nicastro of Venezuela 4-3 in the championship match in the 75-kilogram weight class on Friday. It was the only gold medal for the United States in karate at the Pan Am Games, which is an Olympic-style competition for countries in the Western Hemisphere.

It is the most significant international title yet for Scott, a TCU graduate who won a silver medal at the last Pan Am Games in 2011 in Mexico.
