Date: July 4, 2022

Category: Goalball

The Goalball national youth teams from Israel (men) and Turkey (women) were crowned this weekend as the new U19’s European champions, in the European ParaYouth Games (EPYG 2022) that took place at the Pajulahti Olympic & Paralympic Training Center.

The Israel national team won in the final against Denmark and stayed undefeated throughout the competition, just like the Turkish ladies’ team, who won the final against Israel. The top scorers’ race was conquered by Doron Hodeda (ISR), with 33 goals, and by Fatma Guler (TUR), with 31 goals. An incredible record for both players and certainly two names to remember as secure rising stars in the worldwide Goalball family.

Here are the final results for the group and final stages:
