Women's Basketball FIBA Olympic Games Qualification Tournament 2020

Had a look at all the team sports and would say that the only sport where Australia might have a problem qualifying a team -which they now qualify - if they were a European country is men's water polo.

In basketball they were 2nd at last women's WC and 4th at men's WC .

In football  volleyball handball they qualify via Asia not Oceania.

Oceania rugby7s is probably the strongest continent.

 

I was alluding to the whole programme of sports, not just the team sports.

because someone at the FIBA headquarters got heavily drunk before developing the Olympic qualifications' format...:hairpull::facepalm:

 

you know...in the French speaking part of Switzerland (where the FIBA HQ are located), absinthe is legal...you can easily find places where they sell it...it's not even expensive (for Swiss standards)...

Because this qualification system was designed to increase the number of “meaningful” international games for each teams that will compete at the Olympics. Apparently this was a request of the national federations themselves.

Assuming no surprises, this will be South Korea's first appearance since 2008.
