By the way...
How can they qualify for the Olympics?
I mean both, the national team and Ludwig/Lippmann?
I'll just interpret the national team in terms of volleyball and Lippmann/Ludwig in terms of beach volleyball. So let's start with volleyball. There are two ways to qualify. The first option is the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments. The German team is in Group C with Poland, Italy, United States, Thailand, Colombia, South Korea and Slovenia. Since only the best two teams qualify, it will be very difficult. There are two more tournaments in total, which means that six teams qualify via the qualifying tournaments and the French team is qualified as hosts anyway. The remaining five places are awarded via the world rankings.
In beach volleyball, on the other hand, there is one big option and several small options. A total of 17 teams can qualify via the FIBV Olympic ranking. This list is based on a team's top twelve results in FIBV events, achieved between January 1, 2023 and June 10, 2024. You can also qualify as this year's world champion. And after June 10, 2024 and the associated clarity as to which teams have qualified via the ranking list, there will be one more qualifying tournament per continent, where the winner will qualify.
