Hamamatsu, Japan, May 20, 2012 - Defending World League champions Russia suffered their first defeat of their 2012 campaign on Sunday as Cuba picked up a 3-2 (23-25, 25-17, 25-20, 18-25, 15-10) victory in yet another classic Pool A match in Hamamatsu, Japan. Cuba was led in scoring by their young captain Wilfredo Leon with 24 points, including three aces. His team blocked well on the day, with 16 blocks in total, led by Jorber Quintana Guerra with five. Russia was led by Pavel Moroz with 18. Russia’s coach Busato gave almost his whole team playing time, but they failed to find their rhythm.
