so, the Netherlands win the tournament based on Round Robin results, Italy are 2nd and Spain 3rd...:evil::pope:

I'm really disappointed...I'd really have liked to watch another chapter of the "neverending story" between NED and ITA...

Japan, Chinese Taipei, Mexico, The Netherlands, hosts Colombia and South Africa will play in Group A. Group B will consist of South Korea, Australia, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and Czech Republic.

This event is the last opportunity to qualify a senior team for next year's Premier12, which offers 2 places at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Do the junior handball world championships by any chance contribute to qualifying for the Olympics? Or this year's football women's U17 World Cup? :)

U-23 World Cup gives points to the world ranking, which gives the top 12 nations a place at the Premier12 next year.

The World Ranking system is really something special:

Even the under-12 World Cup counts towards the ranking. So you must hope your country have some good baseball players at the age of 10-11 :lol:

in any case, the world ranking is pretty much decided for 2018...the top 11 oin the current ranking are already mathematically safe in the Premier 12 of 2019...the only position that could change is the 12th and last...and only if Colombia win the sub-23 world cup and the Dominican Republic end up in 11th or 12th place, which is one of the most improbable combination people could even imagine...
