   Russia takes Div A title for the third time - July 16, 2006
The European championships have ended with Russia winning the event for the 3rd time. The Russian only dropped one game during the championships – a pool match against Spain – and having already beaten Hungary during the quarterfinal pool game started as favourites.
The Hungarians have proved difficult to beat in this championship and the Russians had to wait until the third quarter before they could make their mark on this game to open up consequent lead that they were able to defend until the end of the match.
France beat Spain for third place in another exciting match. France controlled the first half and appeared to be cruising towards victory. Spain step up their game in the third period and slowly fought their way back and briefly took the lead during the final period. France then managed to regain their composure and take final control of the game to pick up the bronze medal
Belgium started the last period 12 points down and yet ran out winner as the Germans ran out of steam in the last 90 seconds during their 5th and 6th place match. For Belgium who just survived relegation last season, this years final high placing is one of the surprises of the tournament. The sixth place of Germany is their best placing ever.
At the bottom end of the table the relegation of Poland is a shock, Poland finished 2nd last year

Last day Results:
Final: Hungary 68 - 77 Russia
Game for 3rd and 4th place: France 64 - 55 Spain
Game for 5th and 6th place: Germany 72-76 Belgium
