Everything was open up to the final day of action with four teams – Russia, Belarus, Latvia and Ukraine – still in contention for the medals. After surprisingly losing 2:3 to Estonia on Thursday, Russia had got back on track and with a speedy 3:0 (25-16, 25-14, and 25-19) to best Ukraine did their job and pocketed the gold medal. After edging neighboring Lithuania also in straight sets (25-19, 25-18, and 25-18), Latvia could settle for second place while Ukraine had to be content with bronze. Even though they beat Estonia 3:1 (25-22, 22-25, 25-21, and 25-19) the guys from Belarus could not get a medal in the end as their set ratio was slightly worse than the figure registered by the Ukrainians.
