The World Olympic Qualifier 2016 is over! France, Poland, Iran and Canada have secured tickets for the Olympic Games, while the other participants will not go to Rio this summer. One of the teams that have failed to qualify for the Olympics is the host of the qualification tournament – Japan.

They finished the tournament at the 7th place with only 2 wins, while one of them came in the very last game on the competition against none other than France! Japan triumphed in straight sets, but it is important to mention that France played this game with their second lineup.
