France held on against never-say-die Russia to win the gold medal at the EuroBasket Women on Saturday night in Latvia.

After the disappointment of an eighth-place finish in 2007, Pierre Vincent's team capped a remarkable comeback to the top of Europe with a 57-53 win over Russia in the championship game.
