They will be accompanied by Bronze-medal winner in Almaty-2013 Yosbany Veitia (52kg) and the champion at the Youth Championship of Guadalajara-2008 Leinier Pero (over 91kg), all national champions in their respective categories.
The report of the Cuban Federation also informed the team will be coached by Rolando Acebal, head of the technical collective, Julian Gonzalez Cedeno and July Mena.
