Greece’s men’s water polo team has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, beating Russia 13-10 at the World Qualification Tournament in Rotterdam.

The victory sent Greece to the tournament’s final, where they will face Montenegro, the 14-12 winners over Croatia earlier Saturday.

Both Greece and Montenegro already qualified with their semifinal victories.

Croatia and Russia will face off Sunday in the third-place game for the final qualifying spot.

The tournament was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was originally scheduled to take place from 22 to 29 March and then from 31 May to 7 June 2020.

The women’s team only just failed to qualify last month in the women’s World Qualification Tournament in Trieste, Italy, finishing 3rd behind Hungary and the Netherlands.

Only two spots from that tournament could qualify and the Greek team fell to the Netherlands, 7-4, in the semis before beating host Italy 10-4 in a meaningless third-place game.
