Well she lived in Germany for some time when she had a boyfriend here but as far as I know she is back in Cuba. She didn't stop playing because she defected but because of injuries.

I think Regla is back in Cuba

The last time I saw Regla Torres on tv, she was cheering for her team (some pictures showed Regla having some problems/arguments with brazilian fans), during the PanAm games in Rio 2007.

That was from a Judo final match between Brazil and Cuba during the Pan, besides the female volleyball defeat to Cuba and the "incident" with the male NT, there were a lot of finals between Brazil and Cuba, with victories for both sides, so I guess that this increased the rivalry.

As I'm form Rio i had the chance of meeting her, and I was impressed she was soooo nice and talked and took pictures with everyone. She said later on an interview that her and many other former great Cuban athletes, such as Teofilo Stevenson and others came to give a kind of moral support for the athletes, something like "if we could do it, than you can do it too" and they were all wearing the Cuba uniform so I guess that's what she does in Cuba now, maybe not just this but well that's what I saw, if you see the 5th seth form the final she and Teofilo are there greeting the players.

I'll see if i can the find the link to the interview.
