The US men's volleyball team arrived yesterday in this city to play two matches against that of Cuba, as part of the preparation of both squads to the Olympic Games next August in Rio de Janeiro.
As planned, the Americans arrived on Thursday with their main players, including William Priddy and Sean Roodney, and the matches will take place at the Sports City Coliseum on June 4th and 6th.
Cuba will also line up its best players, highlighting the four of them inserted in foreign leagues: Rolando Cepeda and Javier Jimenez, in Greece, and Osmani Uriarte and Livan Osoria in Argentina.
United States won its ticket to Rio at Japan 2015 World Cup, where they ranked first, while Cuba earned the seat by winning the gold medal in the continental Olympic Qualifying Tournament this year in Edmonton, Canada.
