Zoran Lukac, GB M20 Head Coach said “The guys have done an amazing job in this short period of ttime that we have been together. They are a lovely and very smart group of men which is reflected in the fantastic atmosphere inside the squad, and I believe we have managed to transform this onto the court as well.
Even with this short preparation time, I am really proud and happy with the work we have done so far, and really look forward to seeing what we can do when the competition starts. We will definitely have fun, and keep fighting until the end, and try to make all the people proud that are watching from Great Britain.
A huge thank you to the staff and athletes, they have all been fantastic.”
We’d also like to thank the other athletes in the holding camp, helping the team prepare optimally
