“I have to be honest: I’m a little talkative,” said team boss Stano Steljammer, who couldn’t really believe the evening of victory. “The women here have rewarded themselves for the hardest and most professional work of the entire summer.

After the Austrians conceded defeat to the Americans by only one point in the group, they were hot for the semifinals – and showed from the outset that excitement was possible on this day. Chil, in particular, thrilled her first match on this scale, and Sagerer made life difficult for American women – and 17:15 led Austria to a thrilling victory.

In the final match against Spain, when everything was possible in the last seconds, with a score of 15:16 and seven seconds to go, a bad defeat hit Weffer-thin, which feels like a win anyway. And exactly. Second place not only brought in a $ 3,000 prize money, but also one of the biggest wins in Austrian basketball history.
