  • [01] Greece Third in the World

  • [01] Defeated Croatia 11-10 in Extra Time Greece Third in the World

    By Dimitris Alexopoulos

    The Greek Water Polo team climbed at the third step of the podium in the 11th FINA World Championships held in Montreal. Alessandro Campagna's boys prevailed over Croatia 11-10 (9-9 regular period) after a breathtaking game that came down to extra time. Giorgos Afroudakis was the last minute's hero, as he scored the last but victorious goal 11.5 seconds before the end of extra time. For the Greek team, this is by far the best place they have ever ranked in a major event. They had come fourth in the Athens Olympic Games and at the 2003 world meet in Barcelona. Well done to all the boys that honoured Greece with their passion and claimed the bronze medal.
