The home team of Greece won the 2015 U18 European Championships held in Volos from July 23rd to August 3rd. The winning team clinched the gold medal after a close game in the final against a loaded Turkish team, which counted on top talents Korkmaz and Yurtseven. Lithuania claimed the bronze medal over surprising Bosnia Herzegovina. Talented teams France and Germany lost in quarterfinal games, with underachieving results. The moral of this competition is that the average level of the 1998 generation in Europe is higher than the 1997 (of course with some exceptions).
