Nine instead of ten: Cuba withdraws from Pan American men’s qualifying tournament

Yesterday the Pan American Team Handball Federation (PATHF) confirmed via press release that Cuba has decided not to participate in the men’s qualifying tournament in Uruguay next month because of a lack in funds.

The decision was made a month ago, according to the press release. Paraguay was slated to become Cuba’s replacement, but also decided to forego participation due to financial reasons.

The announcement comes a few days before the draw on Sunday. Nine nations are scheduled to take part in the event scheduled from June 22-29. Favorites to medal are Brazil, Argentina and Chile, but the other countries, including host Uruguay and the United States, are hoping to create a few upsets and land in the top three to qualify for the 2015 World Championships in Qatar.
