The Puerto Rico women’s basketball team qualifies for the 2020 Olympics

Although Puerto Rico lost 89-51 against France in their last game at the Bourges qualifying tournament in France on Sunday, Brazil were eliminated from Australia, guaranteeing their first victory in Puerto Rico qualifying.

“Historical!” the Basketball Federation of Puerto Rico published on Facebook.

“It’s a dream come true,” said Luis Miranda, general manager of the Puerto Rico Women’s Basketball League, according to reports from the Spanish news agency EFE. “In the past five years in the Women’s Basketball League in Puerto Rico (BSNF) we have worked to ensure that the women on the team have the highest degree of ability.”

It’s a big win for Puerto Rico, which has been haunted by a series of bad headlines recently, by a continuing series of earthquakes to news that Hurricane Maria had had a serious need for relief supplies since the hurricane hit the island for more than two years ago.

France and Australia also qualified for the Tokyo Summer Games basketball tournament.

“The 2018 FIBA ​​Women’s Basketball World Cup champions hosted directly in the USA and the Olympics from Japan,” according to the international federation.
