Russia Champions!

Russia are the 2005 ACI Trading Ltd U20 European Champions after a 61-53 defeat against Lithuania in Sunday’s final.

In a mistake-filled, tension-packed contest, it was Russia who were able to just do enough to edge their counterparts after an enthralling 40 minutes.

Serbia & Montnegro Win Bronze

Serbia & Montenegro completed the ACI Trading Ltd U20 European Championship Men on Sunday with a bronze medal following their victory over Israel on Sunday.

The game proved to be something of an anti-climax as an emotionally drained Israel, 24 hours after a heart-breaking final second loss to Lithuania, fell quickly behind.
