The DVV women completed their first VNL block in Antalya, Turkey, with just one win and three losses, thwarting their hopes of getting a ticket to Paris.

By the end of the group stage (June 16), Germany must be among the top ten teams in the world rankings in order to be able to secure one of the last five tickets to the Summer Olympics in Paris (July 26 to August 11). Before the start of the international match, Germany was in 12th place and their fortunes had not improved.

Unlike the men, the German players missed their first chance to qualify for the Olympics in an elimination tournament. Weibel, who also coaches FC Dresdner in the Bundesliga (since 2009), has been moved to the position of national coach until August following the unexpected resignation of Belgian Vital Heinen.

DVV will play their next match on Thursday (11pm CET) against Canada.
