Who gave this Belgium a chance? Two weeks ago, our lions embarked on a very difficult task in Graz, Austria: a ticket to attend the Games. Despite the three wins out of four matches, the tournament actually ended in the group stage. Belgium did not come out of the first inverted qualifying tournament. The victory of the United States over the world champions increased faith. With these performances, Belgium deserved a second chance. It should have happened in Debrecen, six countries to get last place in the Games. The Lions got off to a good start on Friday with wins over Ukraine and Slovenia. The result was a place in the semi-finals against Mongolia. It was a thrilling story against the Mughals. A shot was made shortly before the bell of Rafael Bogarts and earned a place in the final: 16-15.
Our boys faced their last mission against the host nation Hungary. But this function was also coped with excellently. Belgium didn’t need ten minutes to dominate the game: 21-14. The powerful Thibaut Vervoort paved the way, and Thierry Marin finished it off. Belgium crowned themselves the deserving eventual winner, so they too can go to the games after our cats. The ultimate bonus for Major and Team Leader Nick Seles, started 3×3 years ago in Belgium. Rafael Bogarts eventually became the best player. “This is the highest percentage an athlete can achieve, the Games,” Bogarts said after qualifying. “Our hard work and the many sacrifices we made over the past few months are now being rewarded. After what we showed in Graz, we deserve to go to Tokyo. Belgium is a real team,” Bogarts said. Latvia, Poland, China, Russia, the Netherlands, Serbia and host country Japan have already qualified. It’s the first time On the date that 3×3 is included in the games.
