“It feels wonderful to win,” Rodriguez commented. “Puerto Rico won two silver medals in the past here at Cayman, and I’m proud to take home the gold.”

Candelas/Garcia reached the final by defeating Puerto Rico’s Yarleen Santiago and Yamileska Yantin 2-0 (21-17, 21-11) while Revuelta/Vírgen prevailed in a three-setter semifinal (21-19, 19-21, 15-13) against Jennifer Snyder and Heather Hughes of USA.
