Daeron Tinúviel said:well dude no offense but u got learn a little history..........
The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is an archipelago in the eastern Caribbean of autonomous politics, in free association with the United States.
Despite being a dependency of the United States, Puerto Rico has its own autonomy sports-wise.
Puerto Rico has been partof the Olympic Movement from 1948, although the definitive recognition did not take place until the July 1958, after ten years of internal fights.
