Olympic Games European Qualification 2012, Luxembourg, April 11th - April 15th

Men's and Women's Groups (http://www.eoqt2012.lu/completeresults.html)

Entries: 64

The Olympic Games European Qualification 2012 is just around the corner with the action beginning on the 11th April 2012! This spectacular event will decide who will qualify for the London 2012 Olympic games! There will be fierce battles and the system used will be the same one for the Olympic games in 2008.

As cited by Milica Nikolic, EWT of ETTU.ORG (http://www.ettu.org/2012/04/five-days-of-ruthless-battles-at-european-qualifications/)

Each NOC could send up to 3 players in each event, after deduction of the number of players directly qualified through their position on the first World Ranking issued after the World Championships in 2011. Only two players from an Association can qualify for the OG individual events, whereby a third player from an Association may qualify to complete the team for the team events.

I'm a bit disappointed that Romania's national tt body decided to send Cioti and Ovidiu and not Hunor, he won the national championships and played best at the WTTC, now it is likely he will have to play the world olympic qualification final event, much harder. Either way it should be awesome, hope Tiago can do it!

Sorry to be annoying, but it should be BRITAINS Liam Pitchford etc, as all the players are competing for GBR rather than England in Olympic stuff.
Sorry for knitpicking but it annoys me when that happens :/
enjoy the tourney! :)

Oh my god!!
The qualification games were awsome!!!
I was there during yesterday and the day before! I supported Portugal of course ;D
Marcos Freitas and Joao Monteiro got through but it was very tough!
Marcos defeated Lebesson and Joao had to play against a defender!
The first match was tough but Marcos won it by 4-1!
The second one was amazing! Joao was there playing topspin and smashing on the whole table and the other one was chopping like a monster! Unbelievable! Hope someone has highlights because I think it was live streaming!!
Apolonia lost during these 2 days :( Hope he does it today!!
After that, I had the opportunity to talk to the coaches and the players!! O.O
They're really friendly and after several minutes of talk about where I come from and how long do I play and so on, I got autographs from the 3 players AND Joao Monteiro gave me his T-Shirt! :O he shaked my hand, gave me his t-shirt and thanked me for the encouragement and so on :)
I didn't finish there ^^ I was walking to the exit when a man came at me and stoped me. I was like "no, he's gona steal my t-shirt!! why? ;_;" In fact, it was Joao Monteiro's father ^^ He talked to me and told me a bit about Joao ;) Very nice guy his father!
Yesterday, I could sit with the team while they were supporting Tiago, who lost against a strong Karakasevic :(
I got in touch with him and he told me that it was really difficult to play because of his knee. Sometimes it's okay but sometimes it hurts and he isn't able to move very fast or to do some jumps. Sometimes during the match, he didn't put much weight on his knee and so you could see how he was!
I hope he does it today!

Força Tiago!!!!


P.S.: Highlights would be very awsome ^^

he abandonned! maybe too much pain in his knee...
I think he felt pain on the second day but continued trying to qualify.. he didn't manage to qualify, so why should he play a game which isn't important if you feel pain?
