The third Pan American Women's title was won undefeated.
In a final against Cuban favorites, housewives, and under the perplexed eye of President Fidel Castro, who surrendered to the talent of Brazilian players after seeing our team win the match 97 x 76, Brazil wins the gold medal and takes our flag to the highest place on the podium.
