Turkey reaffirm #EuroLeagueM domination
Gold Medal Match
Turkey reaffirmed their Golden #EuroLeagueM domination as on Sunday they grabbed the Gold Medals, outclassing at 3-1 their opponents from Ukraine. This is the second consecutive title for the team of head coach Nedim Özbey (Turkey are the 2019 titleholders, too. The 2020 tournament was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic).
On the last day of play in the Final Four, the Turkish players recorded their 8th win in as many matches in the 2021 edition of the CEV Volleyball European Golden League. Meeting Ukraine in the Grand Finale, Turkey started better and grabbed a rather easy two first sets, but their opponents showed great nerves in the next two sets and made it difficult for the Turks. Even though the Turkish team let some errors affect their game, they were able to eventually show better skills in the decisive moments, outclassing the opponents in all the components
It was Yiğit Gülmezoglu’s strong services in the end of the fourth set that helped Turkey on the way to bringing home the gold. The top scorer of the League Round, Adis Lagumdzja didn’t disappoint the Turkish fans, and became once again Best Scorer, this time with 23 points to his name.
A special guest attended the Golden #EuroLeagueM Final, CEV President Mr. Aleksandar Boricic, who enjoyed the high class Volleyball delivered by both teams.
