The Canadian men's volleyball team is heading to this summer's Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The men used a 3-0 win over Puerto Rico on Sunday to clinch a spot at the Olympics during the NORCECA men's qualification tournament played at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver.

"This is amazing," said Blair Bann, one of eight players making a return trip to the Games. "It's a good feeling right now.

"Today we knew it was going to be all in. If we gave our best effort, we would be successful."
