The final of the European korfball championships will be played between the Netherlands and.......Germany! The Netherlands beat Belgium 22-9 in the semi's, meaning it's the first European final that is not NED - BEL since 2002, when the Netherlands beat the Czech Republic in the final. Germany beat Portugal 20-10 in the semi's.

Which means today we had a repeat of last year's ECh final, where Germany surprisingly managed to reach the final.

Taiwan nearly upset Belgium again :yikes:

 

They had a rather impressive comeback, I believe they went from 18-13 (something like that) to scoring 19-19 in the last half minute. Golden goal had to be played and there Belgium took the win.

 

Netherlands crushed China 27-12.

Some celebratory scenes out of the Netherlands after today's epic final, it's just absolute mayhem from the center of Amsterdam:

mayhem or not, those however are always lovely landscapes...

 

the canals in Utrecht are the absolute top...

Just a little scary when you're going to a restaurant down at the 'docks' (the places you see directly next to the water) with among others your sister's boyfriend who's in an electrical wheelchair and would be nearly impossible to get out of the water if he makes a tiny steering mistake :p

At least your grandmother doesn’t literally fall over the doorstep into your home every time she comes over :p.
