The bronze medal is good enough for Trentino


There was a big celebration by Trentino players following their medal bronze in Betim

Betim, Brazi, October 20, 2013 – Trentino Diatec was not able to defend the crown they won the last four years but are leaving the tournament satisfied with a bronze medal captured by a young new squad.

Emanuele Birarelli, captain of Trentino: I am very happy because we achieved our goal of winning a medal. It is a bronze medal but we are a young team that still need a little bit of time to improve and be able to play against teams like Brazil, Russia and the best Italian teams.

Demian Gonzales, captain of UPCN: We are sad about not winning medal but on the road will learn from this experience. We gave our best and today had a chance but couldn’t take advantage of it. It was very tough for us because the other three teams in the semifinals have more international level.

Roberto Serniotti, coach of Trentino: Very happy for the bronze medal and I hope it can be of inspiration for our young team. It was a tough match against a difficult opponent. Our team has changed a lot since last year, so we have a lot of reasons to celebrate big this bronze medal.

Fabian Armoa, coach of UPCN: We have had a very good campaign and had the illusion of taking a medal back with us but we needed a better game. We played against teams of very high level which are not our regular matches. I feel proud about my team, the management, and our staff. We go back with the hands empty but with the desire to continue working hard and come back next year.
