Nigeria Road to Beijing 2008

Weight Lifting

10 men and 10 women lifters were invited to camp in Abuja immediately after the two-day national open trials for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games qualifiers in January in Lagos. 19 weightlifters left for Cape Town, South Africa already. There`s the confident that Nigeria will be in Beijing for weight lifting.

Wrestling

Nigeria to Repeat Beijing Wrestling Qualifier. One has already among four the earlier qualified wristlers. Due tto some circumstance beyond our control we are going to contest the remaining three in Canada. I am sure we will progress with them to Beijing 2008.

Soccer

The national U-23 football team is get set for Beijing. Players are on their way preparing to win the gold cup.

You have no idea. ;)

No, the sports I truly enjoy (watching) are: volleyball (both), yes, figure skating (how different is that from millions of other viewers?), gymnastics (both kinds), rowing (I just love the symmetry of all those teams pushing), synchro swim, soccer and equestrian. The rest I'll put in the take-it-or-leave-it basis.

Serbia, Japan and Poland all qualified for the women's volleyball tournament. The final spot will be between South Korea and Thailand, but it looks like South Korea will be getting it.

Shame Germany and Turkey failed to even make it into the women's qualification volleyball tournament. Germany was a surprise team in the 2006 FIVB World Women's Volleyball Tournament in Japan--my favorite player on the German team is Birgit Thumm. Turkey could've surprise in qualification too, given that plenty of Turkish over the past decade and a half played volleyball in US colleges.

Algeria replaces its French-speaking North African Olympic qualifying neighbor Tunisia for the upcoming men's qualification tournament. It'll be tough for them to emulate the Algerian women against Australia, Italy, Japan, Iran, South Korea, and Argentina

Day two results from the men's Volleyball qualification tournament:

Spain 3 - 1 Chinese Taipei (25-19, 25-15, 23-25, 25-20)

Cuba 2 - 3 Germany (26-24, 25-21, 21-25, 18-25, 13-15)

Well, if Germany can beat Spain they will get an Olympic berth.

That seems strange. Why shouldn't Japan have been named as the Best Asian team, therefore taking Dom Republic as World Best #3? Kazakhstan's (together with Algeria and Venezuela) are going to get slaughtered in Beijing.

THIS JUST IN: Indoor Germen volleyball team beat Spain for Beijing slot!! First time for Germany since 1972. Spain and Cuba will have to sit out until London.

Thats because FIVB doesn't have any logic.

Men's Volley WQT starts in Japan.

Japan, South Korea, Australia, Algeria, Iran, Thailand, Argentina and Italy.

The winner and the best asian team will qualifie (cause this WQT is combined with the Asian QT). In case of an asian winner the other qualified will be the second best asian team.
