Rio de Janeiro — Brazil won both the men's and women's league title in the country competition of the
Olympic test event table tennis in Rio de Janeiro.
Green floor Olympics 2016: a novelty
The probability that the title would go to other teams was minimal, as there were only three foreign enrollments and an abundance of
table tennis teams from Brazil.
In the men's final Chile and Argentina managed to survive the first round (quarterfinals), but in the semifinals
Brazil was too strong twice.
In the women's final were only four entries in total.
Chile was immediately bowled in the tournament, but revenged themselves with bronze.
Ultimately, the most important thing table tennis fans need to remember about this
Olympic test tournamentis that the games were played on a green floor (see photo).
A green floor is a novelty in line with the national colors of Brazil. Rio de Janeiro will be hosting the upcoming Summer Olympics in 2016.
