:GRE Greece -:ESP Spain 5-10


Congratulations to Spain who are world champions! They absoloutely deserved this title, today they played another flawless match after their excellent performance in their quarterfinal and semifinal.


Our girls tried but they couldn't find many solutions to beat the spanish defence. However, it was a great tournament for us. Today, our team was just outplayed, no shame for that, we are grateful for what our girls achieved. 


This is the second time Spain wins this title and the fifth medal they take. For Greece it is our second silver medal and fourth medal in total. 


Hungary won the bronze medal against Italy. This match was very tight, the score was tied at the end of each of the first three quarters and all the difference was made in the fourth.


In the other matches, :RUS Russia finished in fifth place after demolishing the :NED Netherlands 19-8. Dutch were just one goal down at half time at 7-8, but then Russia scored 10 consecutive goals to make the score 7-18 in the middle of the fourth quarter.


:ISR Israel ended their great run in seventh place beating :SRB Serbia on penalties. Israel's women's team should improve a lot in the next few years, many of their players looked promising in this competition.
