Czech bronze at the U18 Softball World Cup is historical! This is the first time ever that a European team made it to the podium at a World Softball Championship, both junior or senior, and male or female.
Gabriel Waage, both European Softball Federation President and Czech Softball Federation President, comments:
The historical bronze medal from U18 World Cup is a great news for Czech Softball and for Softball Europe too.
Three generations of young Czech players worked hard and travelled over all of the world to face top teams on the world in order to get here. Behind this wind, I see a great message: when you have a goal focusing for, the success will come.
Together with last year successful World Cup Men the Czechs and Europe will write new chapter for the world of softball.
He also adds:
I am proud of the whole team, I am proud as a Czech and I am proud as a European.
The whole Europe is proud of these young athletes and today is celebrating with them.
