High level of competition expected at the Pan American Cup

The Pan American Cup, which will take place in Mexico, is set to begin on Monday and will run until August 25.

Mexico City, Mexico, August 18, 2013 – The General Technical Meeting of the VIII Senior Men’s Pan American Cup took place on Sunday, with the coaches emphasising the high level of competition at this year’s event.

Alejandro Grossi (Argentina): “The Senior Pan American Cup is a very prestigious tournament. Some of our players are very young and we hope that can achieve more experience.”

Roberley Leonaldo (Brazil): “It is a very interesting competition. We have some players from the main team but also some guys from the U23 category and hope it will be helpful for the age-group World Championship that we will hold in Brazil.”

Osiel Vázquez (Dominican Republic): “One year ago we won a bronze medal. Our goal is to get back on the podium and get the chance to contend at the World League qualification tournament again.”

Sergio Hernandez (Mexico): “We are very honoured to host this competition. It is a great responsibility. We have some players with proven experience and we expect they can contribute well to help us reach the World League qualifier.”

David Alemán (Puerto Rico): “I have a new task with the men’s team as we have new players and some veterans. We have practiced for the last seven months and we hope to have a good performance at this Pan American Cup.”

Gideon Dickson (Trinidad and Tobago): “We are very thankful to be in this tournament. It will be a competition with high standards. We are going to take each game as it comes.”

Shawn Patchell (United States of America): “I’ve been involved in this tournament for three years. We won last year. We have a very different team with only three players returning but we expect to win. We are acclimatising to the elevation, and are excited to be here.”
