Lowest average age: “Looks young”

As the host nation, Great Britain automatically qualified for the Olympic Games in London 2012. There was one win and -75 on goal difference.

There were no further championships for Great Britain, which has the lowest average age of the twelve teams currently qualifying for the Olympics.
