Final rankingEdit


*Hungary, Italy and Spain qualified for the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Croatia also qualified, although the team was not even at the World Cup, having finished ninth at last year's World Swimming Championships in Perth, Australia, missing the eight-team cut-off for the World Cup. But by finishing second at the recent European Championship and the fact that Hungary downed Olympic and World Champion Spain 8-4 in the medal semifinal, Croatia claimed the European continental berth.
