Chances for the Ugandan Women Beach Volleyball team to qualify for the Olympics in 2020 have diminished after being humiliated by the two countries, Guinea Conakry and Mozambique on Match Day 1.
The Volleyball games that commenced on Tuesday morning at the White Sand beach in Entebbe will help identify qualifiers in the second round of the women group D beach volleyball continental show piece.
Hosts Uganda have already lost to Guinea Conakry and Mozambique as it awaits competing with two other teams in group D which include continental giants Egypt and Zimbabwe.
The Ugandan team has players Peace Busingye, skipper Joanita Nabuuto, Margret Namayalo and K. Nagoya. The fifth player Saidat Nungi is injured and missing.
After being humiliated in the first games, Uganda now has to win the remaining two games with Egypt and Zimbabwe which many of the players say is unlikely.
The top two countries in the group will qualify for the next level of qualifiers for the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo.
Uganda Volleyball Federation (UVF), Confederation of African Volleyball, Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC), National Council of Sports (NCS) and Nivana drinking water.
