Is this an OG qualifying criteria? I ask because as far as I know there have been some qualifying matches this weekend.

No It is not.

12 teams in the olympics

1 the host GB
3 teams from world cup 2011
1 team from the African Qualification Tournament
1 team from the Asian Qualification Tournament
1 team from NORCECA Qualification Tournament
1 team from South American Qualification Tournament
1 team from European Qualification Tournament
3 teams from 3 World Qualification Tournaments

This Championship is important though. the winner will Qualify to world cup 2011 in Japan. and the finalist will have a good chance to qualify too

Slovakia really impressed me. they seem to have a decent team.

We lost yesterday, but the rules in these ECh are so weird, that it might be better for us to be on the 2nd-3rd place in the group, than in the 1st :roll: Because of that we can avoid stronger opponent in the 1/4...

Poland lost 1-3 to Slovakia . Slovakia really have a decent side. anyways it wasn't really an important game...finishing 3rd is way better than finishing 2nd in this group. that way you will avoid playing vs Russia in the quarters

Yes, I know it. But first we need to beat the host Czechs. And I don't think it will be a piece of cake... :-k

1. Serbia
2. Italy
3. Poland
4. Russia
The bronze medal is a very good result for us, as we had many absences due to injuries and other reasons =D>

I never expected Serbia to win this championship. But they really deserved it.
