China faces a “mission impossible” in its bid to reach next year’s Tokyo Olympics, according to the national team’s head coach, Du Feng.

Team China failed to directly qualify for next year’s Games following a disappointing performance at the 2019 FIBA World Cup. Despite hosting the tournament, China only ranked 24th out of the 32 teams, with two wins and three defeats.

Now, Team China faces the daunting task of trying to qualify via the FIBA Olympic qualifying tournaments, which will see 24 teams vying for just four Tokyo 2020 spots. Together with host Japan, a total of 12 teams will play at the Games.
