China Men’s Basketball Olympic Qualifying Tournament Schedule
Chai Wensheng, head of the National Team Management Department of the Chinese Basketball Association, told reporters that after the CBA League, some national players will represent their local teams in the National Games Qualifying Tournament in May. One week after the end of the National Games qualifiers, the Chinese men’s basketball team will start training, and plans to go to the Philippines in mid-to-early June to participate in the Asian Cup qualifiers, and then go directly from the Philippines to Canada to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics defeat at the end of June.
In the losing match of the Olympic Games, the Chinese men’s basketball team was in the same division as the Greek, Canadian, Czech, Turkish and Uruguay teams. These 6 teams are divided into two groups for round-robin competitions. The top two teams in the group will compete for the only Olympic seat in the division through cross-elimination. The opponents of the Chinese team in the group are Greece and Canada.
Chai Wensheng said that although it is extremely difficult for the Chinese men’s basketball team to qualify from the perspective of strength, the team will definitely do its best with a good mental outlook.
The Chinese women’s basketball team and the Chinese men’s and women’s three-person basketball team have already qualified for the Tokyo Olympics. According to Chai Wensheng, the Chinese women’s basketball team started training in late March and went to Guangdong to transfer training on April 15. In the preparation process, the Chinese women’s basketball team will have a warm-up match with the Beijing Sport University men’s basketball team and some provincial and municipal youth men’s basketball teams.
In addition, preparations for the Chinese men’s and women’s three-player basketball national team are also underway in an orderly manner.
Chai Wensheng told reporters that the Chinese Basketball Association has established a leading group for Olympic preparations directly under the leadership of the association, commanding and coordinating the training and preparation of the four national teams. At present, several teams are facing different forms of difficulties and challenges, such as injuries, lack of opponent information, lack of opportunities for international warm-up matches, etc. However, the teams will work together to overcome difficulties and do their best to prepare for the war.
