  • Looking which Dominican players are on WGP, clear 12 for tournament probably is:
    S: Niverka Marte, Camil Dominguez
    OP: Gina Mambru, Brayelin Martinez (also OH)
    OH: Bethania De La Cruz, Prisilla Rivera, Yonkaira Pena, Ana Binet (back row)
    MB: Candida Arias, Marianne Fersola, Jineiry Martinez
    L: Brenda Castillo


    only Vargas can replace J. Martinez, but I don't think that she joined team
    we saw Lisvel Eve, Erasma Moreno, Cindy Rondon and Winifer Fernandez with team A, but they are playing in WGP now


    Peru can probably play with team playing on WGP right now, because 3rd division is coming to an end:
    S: Zoila La Rosa, Alexandra Munoz
    OP: Angela Leyva (also OH), Rafaela Camet
    OH: Maguilaura Frias (also OH), Carla Rueda, Karla Ortiz, Coraima Gomez
    MB: Mirtha Uribe, Clarivet Yllescas, Andrea Urrutia, Ginna Lopez
    L: Maria De Fatima Acosta, Susan Egoavil


    Cubans are also ending WGP, so their roster can be:
    S: Yamila Santas, Gretell Moreno, Baeatriz Vilches
    OP: Melissa Vargas
    OH: Sulian Matienzo, Jennifer Alvarez, Regla Gracia, Dayami Sanchez
    MB: Alena Rojas, Daymara Lescay, Heidy Casanova
    L: Emily Borrell

  • USA players with positions:
    S: Lloyd, J. Hagglund
    OP: Fawcett
    OH: Hildebrand, Vansant (also OP), Fonoimoana (also OP), Lichtman, Bartsch
    MB: Adams, Paolini, Jackson
    L: N. Hagglund


    Finals of WGP 2nd Division are 1st-2nd August so Puerto Rico, Canada and Argentina can send their top teams as well (Canada and Argentina won't qualify to WGP finals...).


    Puerto Rico will probably go with these players:
    S: Vilmarie Mojica, Natalia Valentin
    OP: Karina Ocasio, Shirley Ferrer
    OH: Aurea Cruz, Yarimar Rosa, Stephanie Enright
    MB: Alexandra Oquendo, Sheila Ocasio, Lynda Morales
    L: Deborah Seilhamer, Nayka Benitez - one as backup OH


    According to website olympic.ca, Canada is going with following 12:
    S: Jennifer Lundquist, Danielle Smith
    OP: Tabitha Love
    OH: Kyla Richey, Brittany Page (also OP), Dana Cranston, Shanice Marcelle
    MB: Jaimie Thibeault, Marissa Field, Rebecca Pavan, Lucile Charuk
    L: Tesca Andrew-Wasylik


    Argentina made some switches between Pan-Am Cup and WGP, so some players can be a mystery.

  • Making simulation on paper:


    Pool A:
    Dominican Reoublic is a favourite here. Argentina should fight with Cuba for second place and Argentina seems to be a bit better, though fight here should be close.


    Pool B:
    Brazil and USA will fight for first place, Peru and Puerto Rico for third.


    4th team next to Dominicans, Brazil and USA can be either Argentina or Cuba or Puerto Rico - last games between these 3 were pretty tight.
    I don't give chances for Canada and Peru.
