China is presented by strong teams in the 3X3 Basketball Tournament that will make its debut at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

The Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) released the list on July 2 as follows:

Heren: Hu Jinqiu, Li Haonan, Yan Peng, Gao Shiyan, Chen Peidong (plaatsvervanger), Liu Hengyi (plaatsvervanger)

Vrouwen: Zhang Zhiting, Wang Jiuan, Yang Shuyu, Wang Lili, Wang Haimei (vervanger), Li Yingyun (vervanger)

Among the men, Hu and Gao have recently emerged as the top NFL champions, while Zhang and substitute Li were influential in China’s victory in the 2019 FIBA ​​Women’s Championship.

“He is the core of the men’s team. His physical fitness and tactical fitness will inspire the whole team,” Liu Chen, coach of the Chinese national 3X3 team, told Xinhua in an interview.

“Competitiveness on the international stage is the only criterion when selecting players,” said Xu Jiamin, coach of the women’s team.

“For the players who were not selected for the Olympics list, I would like to thank them,” Shaw added.

They worked really hard during the bootcamp. They helped each other, inspired each other and made progress together. We ended up competing with only four players in the Olympics, but our team will continue to persevere and love those players who were not ultimately selected in Tokyo.”

Team China demonstrated excellence in sports as both the men’s and women’s team won championships at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta.

Also, the Chinese women’s team won the 2019 FIBA ​​Women’s World Cup 3×3 in Amsterdam, Netherlands – the first Chinese team to win a world basketball title.

This fast-paced version of basketball was developed from street basketball, the world’s first urban team sport, according to the Tokyo 2020 website.

3X3 debuted at the Singapore Youth Olympics (YOG) in 2010 after the adoption of global rules by the International Basketball Federation in 2007.

The International Basketball Federation launched the 3X3 World Cup International Program in 2012, while the FIBA ​​3X3 World Tour is club based.

Eight teams of both men’s and women’s competitions will battle for glory at the Aomi Urban Sports Park in Tokyo from July 24 to 28.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said in a statement in February that Russian athletes will compete under the ROC name instead of its full name, the Russian Olympic Committee, at both the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo and the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
