Olympic 2024: Finland's journey to the FIBA 2023 Basketball World Cup and perhaps to Paris 2024
Despite not having a long history in basketball, Finland has been making strides in recent years. Led by NBA player Lauri Markkanen as he was named the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2019. The Finnish national basketball team, nicknamed the Wolf Pack, is on a mission to meet the requirements for the Olympic Games for the first time in 60 years.
While basketball may not be as popular as other sports in Finland. But the country has a growing basketball culture with young players developing their skills in local clubs and leagues. With Markkanen leading the way, the Wolf Pack has made significant progress in international competitions. Which includes a historic run to the FIBA Basketball World Cup quarterfinals in 2014.
If Finland is to qualify for Paris 2024, it will need to navigate a challenging road through the FIBA France Olympic Pre-Qualifying Tournaments.

And they will make a name for themselves on the international stage.
