The selection of the Republic
Czech has completed its feat this weekend, imposing itself on Greece in the final of the pre-Olympic tournament held in Victoria and achieving his Tokyo Olympics ticket.
It will be the first participation in an Olympic Games for the national team since 1980, thanks to two fantastic performances in the semifinals first and in the final later by their players.
The Czechs got rid of Canada in overtime on Saturday in a match
fast-paced and they won with great solvency last night to the combined Hellene for 97 to 72, definitively stamping his ticket to Tokyo.
20 points from Patrik Auda, 16 points and 8 rebounds of Jan Vesely and a sensational choral game served for the Czechs to achieve a historic classification and leave two of the strongest teams on the scene without an Olympic tournament.
In Tokyo, they will have an even greater challenge. They will be in the group of the United States and Australia national teams, in a first phase in which the first two pass, but also the two best seconds.
