Congratulations to France who have won the IWRF European Division B Championship in Prague!
 
It was a fast and exciting championship match throughout, but early in the fourth quarter France forced several key turnovers that began a final charge the Irish could not recover from. Both teams played great games, and Ireland has shown that they will be a strong contender at the European Division A Championship in September. The final score was 56-48 for France.
 
In the bronze medal game, Switzerland upset Poland for the win and medal, 42-35. Final standings and scores from all of the games are below. Replays can be watched by clicking on the links
