Qualification for Summer Olympics is a priority: expert

Talking about the goals for the season of the men’s team, qualifying for the upcoming Summer Olympics has top priority, said Mariusz Szyszko, media manager for the Polish Volleyball Federation.

Mr Szyszko discussed Polish chances for qualifying to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and, if so, the odds of the team winning the gold medal. The qualifiers for the event will take place in Gdańsk in August.

In the interview with PolandIN’s Marcin Nowak, he also mentions the recent, quite unexpected success of the women’s national volleyball team, which qualified for the Nations’ League Final Six tournament. In his opinion the women’s team will have a remarkably harder route to the Summer Olympics, as they will have to face one of the best teams in the world - Serbia. However, Mr Szyszko believes that the team certainly has chances to reach the semifinals in the upcoming women’s EuroVolley, which will be co-hosted by Poland.
