Polish basketball player: "We were sure that the license would be ours"

"We mobilized all our strength for the tournament held in Hong Kong. We were very close to success."

Idman.biz reports that Aldona Morawiec, a basketball player of the Polish national team, said this.

She commented on the defeat of Azerbaijan in the final of the 3x3 women's basketball Olympic Qualifying Tournament: "When we are so close, it is difficult to say exactly what is missing for the victory. In the 3x3 type of basketball, in most cases, the end of the games is like a lottery. One ball, one foul, one wrong shot decides everything. This time, the ending was not in our favor."

Aldona said that on the eve of the tournament and before the game against Azerbaijan, they thought that they had the license in their "pockets": "We have no plans for the qualification tournament to be held in Hungary. Because we focused all our attention on Hong Kong. We were sure that the license would be ours in this tournament. After intense preparation and tournament, we need a short rest. After that, everything will start again. We have 30 days until our next chance."

It should be noted that the Azerbaijani national team defeated Poland in overtime with a score of 18:17.
