In the finals, San Martín achieved a hard-fought victory over Club de Regatas Lima in Game 3 (2-1 in series), in the match which lasted 1 hour 50 minutes and seemed to stretch to the fifth set.
However, players of San Martín the led by their captain, the Brazilian Milca da Silva, managed to overcome the strong block of opponents and gain the gold medal 3-1 (14-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-20). Milca scored 17 points in the victory of San Martín, while Angélica Aquino had 17 in Regatas.
„The best feeling is the taste which is left from the work you did. We have trained hard to achieve this and every year the league is more difficult. Consistency and work have allowed us to be in four consecutive finals and win three titles. Definitely, a winning team must learn to suffer, to have a bad game and then move forward, like we did today,” said Juan Diego García, the Spanish coach of San Martín.
