Diaris Pérez, captain of Cuba: "This cup was a good experience for our next tournaments. Although we did not have much time to train as a team, we are happy to have won the bronze medal, and it motivates us to train harder to improve and keep adding medals for our country. "

Uxue Gareca, captain of Mexico: "We are not satisfied with the tournament because I feel we could have given more. In the most decisive moments we lacked determination and concentration to finish our plays. We are still calm because we gave our best effort and we took a great learning."
