The Puerto Ricans, who failed to qualify to the world event at their first chance losing to Mexico last May also as hosts, were a more determined team this time and claimed the gold medal in the four-team competition made of the second placed teams of the NORCECA third round qualification tournaments.

The victory earned Puerto Rico their fourth trip to the FIVB Men’s World Championship. They also took part in Mexico (1974), Japan (2006) and Italy (2010).
