Captain Allison Vernerey and MVP Diandra Tchatchouang both collected double-doubles as France got the revenge they were looking for by beating Spain 63-60 to capture their second Termosteps U16 European Championship Women title.
The French title - which will be added to the 2001 crown - ends Spain's three-year reign as U16 champions - among them a victory over France in the 2005 final in Poland.
Diandra Tchatchouang was named Most Valuable Player of the Termosteps U16 European Championship Women after leading France to the gold medal with a 60-57 victory over Spain.
Tchatschouang collected 17 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in the final.
Alena Hanusova scored 15 points as the Czech Republic beat Serbia 65-62 to capture the bronze medal at the Termosteps U16 European Championship Woman, increasing their U16 medal total to three.
The 1997 and 2006 finalists won other medals in the past, but they came under the Czechoslovakia national flag - including the 1989 gold.
