Hero's Welcome In Vilnius

25 September 2013

Hoardes of Lithuanian fans turned out in the country's capital Vilnius on Monday to welcome back the EuroBasket 2013 silver medalists.

Whilst it may not have been the gold medal that so many of the hundreds of fans that turned out had been hoping for, a silver medal still represents the best finish the basketball-mad nation has enjoyed at a EuroBasket since 2003 and their first trip to the podium since 2007.

After being greeted by the party-like atmosphere on Monday, it was a more formal setting that welcomed members of the team on Tuesday when they met with President Dalia Grybauskaitė at the Presidential Palace.
