Langley, Canada, September 30, 2012 – Brazil won the gold medal at Men’s U-23 Pan American Cup after defeating Argentina 3-0 (25-18, 25-13, 25-18) on Sunday.

Henrique Batagim scored 16 points for Brazil, Leandro Santos contributed 9, including four blocks and libero Rogerio Carvalho was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament. Gonzalo Lapera finished with 10 for Argentina.

Brazil outblocked Argentina 9-3 and benefited from 27 unforced errors made by the defeated side to their own 16.

“Facing Argentina always create high expectations,” Brazil’s coach Leonardo Carvalho said. “I am happy for tonight’s victory, but now we have to prepare for the South American Championship.”

In the other match, the Dominican Republic won the bronze medal by defeating Canada 3-0 (25-23, 25-15, 25-23).

Pedro Luis Garcia scored 20 points and Luis David Adames finished with 15 to lead the Dominican offense.  Lucas Van Berkel topped Canada with 11 tallies.

“I feel happy for my athletes, because we achieved the goal of winning a medal, and worked a lot with our service sending all the balls against their number nine (Bradley Kufske) as part of our tactical plan and it worked,” Dominican Republic’s coach Cuban Osiel Vazquez said.
