Canada will not be in Tokyo. The team trained by Nick Nurse fell by surprise to the Czech Republic and he lost his chance to win the ticket to the Olympic Games that is up for grabs in the pre-Olympic tournament.
The Czechs, who had a sensational game and were at the fore at all times, will play today the final of the championship to see if they achieve their pass to Tokyo.
Canada tried go up the meeting in a great last room but it remained at the gates. The Americans had the last shot after a throw-in play but Trey Lyles missed the basket that would have forced overtime.
Tomas Satoransky and Ondrej Balvin led the Czech team that was magnificent in managing the game and kept Canada at bay at all times to achieve one of the great surprises of what we have in summer.
