In the team is 69 athletes, our the biggest team in YOG ever, but I still think that we don't have too big chances for many medals...

We have some young hopes - Iga Świątek (but tennis is specific, with one loss leading even to no medal), Aleksandra Knop (maybe a little bit disappointing in senior Europeans, but maybe the YOG will be her aim for the season), track and field athletes (Mucha made an outstanding performance in Győr at U18 Europeans, Goździewicz even with worse season is in European top in shot put, Kalitta from the hope generation of female pole vaulters (also Łyko and Wejman) with very bad summer season after great winter and after injury and operation), both field hockey teams (last uear European Champions) and maybe someone else whom I haven't noticed by now.

I would love to see any our team (more chances have men's team) in Tokyo Olympics, but it will be extremally difficult to qualify, I think that men's basketball team have bigger chances, ofc if they will qualify to World Cup in China next year.

With that being said, I think that for such a small team, your medal chances are great.

However, I’m sorry that I just guaranteed that Denmark will receive 0 medals.

I think @heywoodu stole them all and is hiding them somewhere in the Netherlands. All truth aside :p, I think the US has brought a very serious team (for once) and seems to be a making a big deal out of it. So I think we might take home the medal count as long as France, GB, China, and Russia stay out of our way

Polish TVP will broadcast some events - AFAIK athletics, swimming, taekwondo, weightlifting, gymnastics and something I don't remember. What's on TV is always on their website, where there are also things that don't find place in TV, but most probably with the geoblock, but there are some ways to... <autocensorship> ;)

Olympic Channel will also have some cooperation with Polish NOC and there will be some stream on Polish NOC wbsite - find if your country also has some agreement like this one.

I meant the hopes for Buenos medals, not for the future (of course, not excluding this option), for sure not for Tokyo. But if you say, though it's wrong thread, I'd say that our field hockey teams, and women's for sure, have in my opinion more chances for Tokyo quota than men's basketball. But their chances mostly depend on two things - if they will play like they did in Johannesburg against Germany and England or like they did in last year's Europeans II, and who will they draw in the qualification event. PS. I have big hopes for Polish volleyball women, seems they are coming back to the times of 2009-2010 team, which had great skills, but a lot of bad luck and wrong atmosphere, which doesn't seem to be the case now.

Very likely that given their ranking both teams would draw a very tough opponent (as in, one ranked 4 to 6). If it were just one match there would be a little hope but in a home and away playoff I would say such opponent is almost impossible to beat for both Poland teams.
