Pam! Dutch water polo players will return to the Olympics for the first time since 2008. They beat Greece in the semifinals of the OKT: 7-4. For national coach Arno Havenga’s team, it was enough to allow Tokyo to go to the final of the Olympic qualifiers.

The Orange team won the 2008 Olympic title under then-national coach Robin van Gaal. In 2012 and 2016 there was no water polo team.
On Triesday (Italy), 2 tickets were awarded to the top 4 countries: the Netherlands, Hungary, Italy and Greece. “Going to the Olympics is more difficult than winning a medal,” national coach Havenga said before the match. But his creation made it beautiful.
Goalkeeper Debbie Williams is the team’s best heroine. He made some important savings to prevent Greece from scoring. Mad McKenzie and Simone van de Groats confirmed the availability of Olympic tickets to the Netherlands in the final stages of the match.
Who else is in Tokyo?
In addition to Orange, the United States, Spain, Canada, Australia, Russia, South Africa, China and Japan have already qualified for Tokyo. There is also Italy or Hungary.
