Any idea why they didn't use the Asian Games as the QE ?

because they are morons ? :d


most continents use their continental Champs for the Olympic Qualifier (except Pan-Am for obvious reason of having 2 confederations) but in Asia we always had a separate qualification tournament which is totally unnecessary . but this all started with that West vs East war in Asian Handball. things look cool now but at some point 20-25 years ago every match including a west Asian team vs an East Asian team was a war with biased officiating, fights etc. 


people probably still remember what happened in 2008 Olympic qualifiers. where IHF finally stepped in and ordered a re-match.


so I guess nobody ever realized "we don't need this separate qualifier anymore" yet Asian Championship at the start of 2024 could be the Olympic qualifier too. Asian Games was in a bad time, some teams didn't have their full squads. (we still don't have ours, some of our Euro-based players didn't show up again)

big big surprise. Bahrain beat Qatar in the semifinal :yikes: and they did it without two of their best players (one got injured early and the other one received a direct red card in the 1st half)



history repeated once again, 4 years ago Bahrain also defeated Qatar in the SF. if I'm not wrong that was the only defeat of this Qatar team (World selection team) under Valero Rivera in an Asian competition.
