Final, Sao Paulo, Brazil:

France – Norway 24:32 (13:19)

Olympic Champions Norway have won after several first places at European Championships the gold medal at the World Championship.

The only defeat Norway has suffered was against Germany in the opener of the tournament.

In this final, the Scandinavians were superior in every aspect of the game and gave no chance to France who was weakened due to injuries during the championship.

Coach Olivier Krumbholz called in back player Marion Limal, but even with her France had absolutely no chance, as Norway controlled the game from the early minutes on.

With a determined game and full focus, the Norwegians used every opportunity to score and France lacked luck often in the attacking, as several shots hit the woodwork only or goalkeeper Katrine Lunde Haraldsen saved marvelously.

Also, in their defense, France had massive problems, the French players were not able to stop the sharpshooters of the opponent.

With this clear victory over France, European Championship silver medalist Sweden has secured a place at the Olympic Games, whilst France has to go through the qualification tournament.

The All Star Team of the World Championship in Brazil is as follows:

Left Wing: Emilia Turei (RUS)
Right Wing: Carmen D. Martin (ESP)
Pivot: Heidi Löke (NOR)
Left Back: Andrea Penezic (CRO)
Centre B ack: Allison Pineau (FRA)
Right Back: Line Jorgensen (DEN)
