Eva Nemcova completed a dream EuroBasket Women for the Czech Republic by burying a three-pointer with just eight seconds to lead her side to a thrilling gold medal game triumph over Russia.
In a rematch of the final two years ago, Russia led by as many as 14 points in the second half but the Czechs staged a remarkable comeback to clinch a 72-70 victory.
The Czech Republic are no longer the 'nearly women' of European basketball after a stunning come-from-behind, gold medal win on Sunday against Russia - their nemesis in recent EuroBaskets.
The Russians beat the Czech Republic 61-51 in the quarter-finals in 1999 and then in 2003, Jan Bobrovsky's team went unbeaten before falling to Russia 59-56 in the title clash.
Czech Republic coach Jan Bobrovsky hailed his side's performance after a 76-66 win over Spain put them into Sunday's EuroBasket women final with Russia.
Bobrovsky considered the Czechs had produced their best performance of the tournament.
The Czech Republic held on to beat Spain 76-66 to set up a re-match of the 2003 EuroBasket showdown which saw them lose to Russia.
Just like two years ago, Jan Bobrovsky's team has reached the title game with an unblemished record in the competition.
