Marcos Kwiek, coach of Dominican Republic:
We prepared ourselves for Cuba's aggressive
game, we had a very close first set but I think
that experience spoke for the rest of the match,
Cuba is a young team that needs to be playing
and it is in our best interest to raise their
level because the more level teams have in the
area will be much better for us.
Jorge Sosa, coach of Cuba: The Dominican
serve was very well structured, our reception
specialist did not let us play, she was the one
who committed the most fouls today, we could not
play with the clarity that we wanted in the
mesh, that is our strength, they simply did not
allow us to play.
The Dominican Republic will face the United
States in the match for the highest medal of
