Basketball Events at the 2020 Japan Olympics - Apr 13, 2019

Eurobasket's Articles

Basketball is one of the world's most watched sports. Each country has a team and each of those teams dreams of seeing the Olympics. With the Olympics fast approaching, just a little over a year away, we begin to see events unfold that will form the outcome of the winners of the men's division of basketball in Japan.

With the qualifier rounds complete for FIBA World Cup, we already know which teams are in competition for the Cup and ultimately one of two eight spots to compete in the Olympics next year. This is international news and we have seen sports books open their pages, you can bet on basketball here, especially if you want your heart rate as quickened by the match as the player's experience! Up to 80 national teams competed to partake in the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers. These 80 teams were handpicked from Asia, Americas, Africa and Oceania. The events which unfolded on the basketball court made history an players won new ranking titles.
The fight for a spot in the FIBA was truly amazing to watch. The events unfolded last year and have been intense to watch and gut wrenching but well worth the wait as our qualifiers made it into the FIBA Cup Championship.

What We Know About the 2020 Japan Olympics So Far

The Olympics will commence on Saturday the 25th of July 2020 and will conclude on Sunday the 9th of August which will be held in Tokyo, Japan's capital. We also know that in order to compete, a team from the following countries needs to be selected:

The Americas
Africa
Asia
Europe
Oceania

Japan has already qualified due to hosting the 2020 Olympics which is believed to be one of the best events of 2020 due to the far lengths the city is willing to go in terms of decorations and celebrations. The Olympian events will be held at the Saitama Super Arena.

These events are only the build up to the FIBA Continental Cups 2021, some of the most anticipated basketball events in history. These events are held every 4 years after the 2017 events and includes, in the men's division:

EuroBasket
Americas Cup
Asia Cup
AfroBasket
And for the women's cups:
EuroBasket Women Cup
Americas Women's Cup
Asia Women's Cup
AfroBasket Women Cup

All the events leading up to the Championship brings out star players. For example, in the 6th and final window of the Asian Qualifiers, Ricardo Ratliffe Ra or AKA Gun-ah, accumulated his 8th double-double in 10 Asian Qualifiers making a new name for himself and improving his rankings. Needless to say we are expecting high hoops for our beloved basketball players and with both FIBA and Olympics Basketball fast approaching, we wonder who will shine and how hard it will the underdog.

Each event is a bloodthirsty, soul searching event, not only for the star players on the court, but also for their coaches getting them over the winning line. Let's see which players make history in 2019!
