Team USA meets Venezuela at the Olympics
Venezuela's men's basketball team has been terminated from the Olympics. Despite the loss, the team is still pleased that they were able to represent Venezuela which seemed impossible in previous years. The Venezuela Men’s Basketball Team was able to reach the Olympics when they won the FIBA Americas tournament which was held last September. The team was able to defeat Canada at that time. It was truly a winning moment for Venezuela because Canada just beat them with 20 points the week before. Venezuela later on beat Argentina which brought them to the Olympics. After 24 years, the Venezuelans won a place at the Olympics.
The team had a hard time making it to the Olympics. The challenges the team had to face were not limited to basketball. Everybody knows that the participation to Olympic basketball is an indication of a certain country's progress.

Cox moved from Caracas to Philadelphia where his relatives are now residing. He is Kobe Bryant's cousin.
