What two city council employees, a dentist and a student had in common at a LOTTO EUROVOLLEY POLAND 2017? All of them worked as Team Guides to support the four best teams in Europe. As the tournament came to an end on Sunday, the Guides had to say goodbye to their teams after almost two weeks of working together. Unexpected tasks and 24h of availability sounds demanding and difficult, but Justyna, Agnieszka, Magda and Monika find it quite the opposite - as the best job in the world.
The winner is only one – and LOTTO EUROVOLLEY POLAND 2017 is no exception as Russia, impeccable in their previous five matches in the tournament, played Germany at TAURON Arena in the most anticipated match of the year to crave for the crown of European champions. They had to fight bravely in their matchup with the Germans, who played almost perfectly, but found a way to become European champions again following their 3-2 victory (25-19, 20-25, 25-22, 17-25, 15-13) – actually for the fourteenth time in history. Germany, on the other hand, achieved their greatest success in the history of the European Championship with an unprecedented silver medal – their first podium finish ever.
