2012 Olympic Games Men's Team Event Seedings

The seedings have been announced for the 16 teams who qualified to take part in the 2012 Olympic Games Men's Team Event.

The team seedings were based on the individual players positions in the world ranking list issued for July 2012.

The men's team event took place from 3-8 August 2012 at the Excel Arena which is the largest competition venue at the London 2012 Games.

China were the hot favourites to take the Gold medal, but South Korea, Japan and Germany were expected to provide strong opposition.
