TIME FOR MEDALS IN FIB WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
Now it’s time for the decision in the World Championships 2023. Both the finals and the bronze matches in both the men’s tournament and the women’s tournament will be played on Sunday. Sweden and Finland have proven to be the strongest teams in both tournaments. Therefore, it feels natural that Sweden and Finland settle for the gold medals. But USA was very close to taking the final place in the women’s tournament when the decisive match against Finland went to a penalty shoot-out, which Finland narrowly won 3-2.
Sweden has been completely superior in the women’s championship and the team has won all the matches, it has been tougher among the men where Finland showed in the group stage match on Friday that the team will be a strong contender for Sweden’s favourites. In the men’s final, it can go either way.
Early on Sunday morning, USA and the Netherlands will play for bronze in the women’s championship, and Norway-Kazakhstan will settle for the same medals in the men’s tournament.
