The Polish National Team has chosen a harder way to secure ticket for the Olympic Games at the Qualification Tournament in Berlin. It will have to play against World League and European Championship gold medalists, France. Poland’s coach Stéphane Antiga revealed that it was his goal!?




“Of course we tried to win but I didn’t want any player to have five sets on the court because tomorrow (on Saturday) is very important game. We have two important games ahead. It would have been crazy to let a player play that long. France are the favorites, they are playing very good. We played France three times recently and it was always the tiebreak. We won twice but they are the best team in the world this year and in decent shape. I know my players are all ready to play because they are fresh. That was the first objective, to stay fit. Not one guy spiked more than 18 times so it’s been good preparation,” Antiga gave an interesting comment after his team suffered defeat against Germany and scheduled semifinal clash with France.
