England did not continue in the competition.


The teams finishing in the first four positions in the competition represented
Europe in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. However, should have England qualified for the final
round and finished in any of the first four positions they would not have been entitled
to participate in the Olympic Games, as England is not a separate member of the IOC.
