BRITAIN TAKE SILVER IN CLOSE EUROPEAN FINAL
24th June 2007
But in making the final the British squad booked their place in a qualification event for next year's European Championships and is a testament to the improvements made within the squad as they look to develop a competitive team for the 2012 London Olympics.
In losing the final 6-2 to an experienced French team, Britain succumbed to only their first loss of the tournament. In the group stage they secured two victories and a 11-11 draw against France before beating the Ukraine in the semi-final 9-6.
The team's impressive run of form at the championships in Prague comes less than five months after the appointment of women's head coach Szilveszter Fekete,.
Manchester Aquatic Centre will play host to the LEN Men's European Nations Trophy next month when 12 squads from across the continent battle it out for prestigious silverware as well as a chance to qualify for the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
The eight-day event, featuring Britain's men, gets underway on 8th July and is the latest major aquatic event to be staged at the Oxford Road aquatics centre. For details visit www.manchester2007.com <http://www.manchester2007.com>
