We had the chance of winning the match many times, but we let it go. They kept on playing and never decreased their level. However, we also showed such a great character. I don’t think about retirement yet. I have four medals. Maybe the last one is not a gold, but as long as I can feel that fire and poise, I want to continue playing one year at a time,” said Hector Soto, captain of Puerto Rico

We had a training camp in Cuba for long time, I think it helped us a lot to achieve this goal. We are very glad for getting this medal. It is special as we can show that we were able to make it,” remarked Elvis Contreras, captain of Dominican Republic.
