Default Olympic hockey format decided

12 men's teams, 8 women's teams will qualify

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The men's hockey tournament at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin will feature 12 teams that enter the competition at the same time, the International Ice Hockey Federation said Thursday.

There will be no qualification round as in Nagano, Japan, in 1998 and Salt Lake City in 2002, federation officials said. The final format will be decided later.

The women's tournament will follow the format used in Salt Lake City, in which eight teams were seeded into groups of four and played a round-robin series.

The top eight men's teams after the 2004 IIHF World Championship along with host team Italy will automatically qualify for the 2006 games. The remaining three will be decided through Olympic Qualification Tournaments.

Italy and the top four women's teams after the 2004 IIHF World Championship in Canada will automatically be in the 2006 games, with the rest qualifying through tournaments.
-------------------------

This new way is better for mens hockey. Its a waste of time to do all the qualfying since every knows that Canada is going to take it anyways.
