In this preliminary round, Korea defeated Italy (0-3), Poland (1-3),
Germany (2-3), the United States (1-3), Colombia (2-3), Thailand (0-3), and Slovenia.
They lost for the 7th time in a row and finished in last place.
Although they showed better performance than the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and Asian Championships,
including winning a set against Poland, ranked 7th in the world, and narrowly losing to Germany
ranked 12th, they were not good enough to compete on the Olympic stage
where the world’s top 12 competed.
It wasn’t enough.
In this world qualifier, in which 24 countries are divided into 3 groups of 8 countries,
the first and second place winners from each group receive a ticket to Paris.
In Group A, the Dominican Republic (9th) and Serbia (2nd) confirmed their trip to Paris.
In Group B, Turkiye (1st place) was the first to advance to the finals by winning all 7 games, while Group C is a mixed race.
The International Volleyball Federation will give 7 Olympic spots to the 6 countries that passed the world qualifiers and the Olympic host country, France.
Additionally, tickets will be distributed to the five countries
with the highest world rankings that did not qualify for the Olympic Games next year.
Korea’s world ranking was so low that its ability to advance to the Olympics for the fourth time in a row was virtually eliminated.
The women’s national team will leave Poland and arrive in Hangzhou, China, where the Asian Games will be held, on the 26th via Doha, Qatar.
