Sieben Tage lang kämpften fünf Teams in einer Höhe von 1.800 Metern auf dem zugefrorenen Lago di Misurina um den Cortina Winter Polo Audi Gold Cup. Nach spannenden Vorrundenspielen hatte am Sonntag das Team Hotel de la Poste mit Alessandro Pastorino, Gonzalo Bernal, Lucas Labat und Cristian Bernal im Finale die Nase vorn. Mit 6:5,5 schlugen die Vier das Team Audi (Luca E. D’Orazio, Rommy Gianni, Dario Musso und Eduardo Menendez). Sehr viel eindeutiger fiel die Entscheidung um Platz drei aus. Mit einem 7,5:3-Sieg sicherte sich das Team US (Aldo Donadi – Gif Turati, Oscar Carona, Francisco Menendez und Julio Coria) den dritten Platz vor Dimitry Vozianov, Espain Gastaldi, Tatu Gomez Romero und Manuel Gonzales vom Team Julius Bär. Platz Fünf ging an das Team Ruinart. Organisiert wurde das Turnier, das seit 2009 zur World Polo Tour zählt, von Claudio Giorgiutti and Maurizio Zuliani.
