All was not lost when Guyana was defeated in the final of the 2018 Rugby Americas North (RAN) Championships on Sunday in Barbados.
The runners up to Jamaica following the 22-17 score line, clinch a berth at the 2019 Pan American Games in Peru.
In fact, the top two men’s and women’s teams will be off to compete at the Lima 2019 Pan American Games.
Following last weekend championships, the top men’s (Jamaica) and women’s (Mexico) finishers booked their tickets to: HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2020: Series Qualifier – 5th-7th April 2019 (Hong Kong Sevens)
Guyana, the most decorated RAN 7s outfit will also have much more to look forward to next year.
Note: RAN teams will be looking ahead to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Results from this year’s RAN 7s determined seeding for next year’s tournament, which is a regional qualifier for the Games.
Guyana affectionately called the ‘Green Machine’, will be seeded just behind the Jamaica Crocs.
