Last in line was Slovakia.

FEHER came to Lisbon after the knee surgery. “I was very nervous how it will looks. I was not sure I am ready. However, it seams everybody else believed in me more then I did. Coach and players encouraged me and now I am surprised with the results. I had best possible care in Barcelona, I could not join my team on preparation, but I was in constant contact with the coach,” explained Gabriela.
Few days before the start of the TMS European Championships head coach of the women team Zoltan MELIK resigned. “He did a great job before he took that decision. We wanted to make him proud here, and I hope we did. This was our way to show him gratitude for all the work he did,” stated FEHER.
