Romania upset top seeds Germany in the Women’s Team Event to take gold at the ITTF-European Team Championships, twelve years since they last tasted gold. It was a closely fought 3-2 match, with each member of the Romanian team securing one win a piece to get them over the line.

“It was a fantastic match; very difficult. We expected that, there was no surprise in that department.” Elizabeta Samara
In the Men’s Team Event Germany and Portugal made their way to the final after both overcoming their opponents in the semi-final 3-2. When it came to the final test it was the Germans that passed and redeemed themselves after a four year absence from the top of the podium.

But after that it was one way traffic, with the Germans dropping just one game in the next two encounters to record a 3-0 win and secure the title.
