After German reunification, West Germany (1949–1990) was renamed Germany and they absorbed East Germany (1949–1990) with the records. Germany also failed to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the European qualifiers at home in Berlin. They have appeared at the Olympic Games on two occasions, finishing in ninth place at Beijing 2008 and fifth place finish at London 2012. However, Germany have enjoyed some recent success on the continental stage, winning European Championship silver last year. Before reunification, East Germany finished fourth at Mexico City 1968, before winning the silver medal at Munich 1972. East Germany were also crowned FIVB World Champions in 1969 and clinched the FIVB World Cup a year later.
