Britain Table Tennis team makes it to the London Olympics 2012
It's official! The Britain team will feature at the 2012 London Olympics. The Men's and Women's team were given three host nation qualification places.
Earlier, there was a controversy and the British Olympic Association (BOA) had asked the British Table Tennis Federation (BTTF) to prove its ability (read medal winning prospects). It now appears that the Federation was able to demonstrate its potential. The British Table Tennis team had not managed to qualify from the various international events.
BOA CEO, Andy Hunt is now satisfied and said that the BTTF had demonstrated that they have laid "solid foundations to maximize the opportunity of competing at a home games."
