Greece is into its first-ever grand final at the World Aquatics Championship after defeating Serbia 13 – 7 on Thursday night in Japan.
The team’s result also secured their presence in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This will be the 17th overall time in Greece’s water polo history that it will play in an Olympic Games and the 12th in a row, since Moscow in 1980.
Their victory against Serbia will go down in history as Greece puts behind them the curse of five lost finals in world championships.
This is also the first time Greece has defeated the Serbians in a major competition and at the same time got revenge for losing to them at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Greece’s water polo team will now face either Spain or Hungary in the grand final on Saturday.
