News - Medals awarded to best women’s volleyball teams

The final matches of the women’s volleyball tournaments were held on on the penultimate day of the European Universities Games Zagreb-Rijeka 2016 at Bojan Stranić Volleyball Hall.

The University of Belgrade won against German Sport University Cologne for the bronze medal

The students from the University of Belgrade played against the German Sport University Cologne for the bronze, and the Serbians proved more successful, winning in four sets – 10:25, 25:18, 25:19, and 25:20. The Serbian team won mostly because the German team performed poorly in blocks, failing to prevent Belgrade’s spikes. Still, the Germans saved every ball that passed the block. The Serbian coach, Ognjen Bulić, hoped for a medal so he wasn’t too surprised with the result.
‘I was pleased when we got to the semi-finals. Both teams played well, but Serbia showed to be better at volleyball and we’re going home with a bronze medal.’

Gold for the Romanian team

The final match of the women’s volleyball tournament ended with a Romanian triumph, as Vasile Alecsandri University in Bacau won the gold medal. The Romainans became European Champions after winning 3:1 (25:19, 12:25, 25:23, 25:23) against the University of Lausanne from Switzerland.

The Technical University of Munich ended fifth after beating the University of Banja Luka 3:1.

The home team from the University of Zagreb didn’t manage to win against the University of Minho, so they ended this competition eighth. The Portuguese team won with 3:1 (27:25, 25:19, 23:25, 27:25).

The team from the University J.J. Strossmayer of Osijek played against Northumbria University for the ninth place. The team from Osijek won after five sets with 3:2 (25:16, 14:25, 25:22, 18:25, 15:3).
