The berths allocated to the Americas for the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow were determined. The United States did not participate in the tournament. Puerto Rico won the tournament by going 5-1 in the round robin. Because of the U.S.-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympic Games, eventual berths went to Brazil, the fourth-place finisher, and Cuba, the sixth-place finisher.
The following national teams competed:
- Puerto Rico wins gold medal based on head-to-head victory over Canada. Argentina wins bronze medal based on head-to-head victory over Brazil.
