Egypt & Algeria decided to drop out of women's qualification :( Algeria due to financial reasons, and Egyptian girls decided they prefer to write some exams which take place at the same time as olympic qualification tournament.

This proves that was the worst idea in history make the Intercontinental Qualifying Tournament separate of World Qualifying Tournament.

Alexander Markin was tested positive for Meldonium after the match against Germany at the european qualification tournament, this might mean that Russia wont be allowed to play in Rio, so Germany might get a second chance to qualify and France could qualify directly. 

I hope that it wont happen, Russia didnt win because of one doped player and they deserve to be in Rio. We threw away the Olympics in the match against Poland, so we dont really deserve to be in Rio in my opinion. If they find a second russian player who was doped, then Russia will definitely be suspended.

during the european qualifications it was actually legal, so because of this they can't be definitely suspended

You do deserve the Olympics, just because of the match against Poland and sensational bronze at World Champs. And the anti-doping rules are obvious - if one athlete from the team or in some sports relay is caught, the whole team is disqualified. I don't see the reason why this should be changed.
