Women's EHF EURO 2000
The 4th edition of the Women's EHF EURO took place in Romania from 8 to 17 December 2000 with Bucharest and Ramnicu Valcea being the host cities.
For the first time in the event's history the final was decided after extra time with Hungary eventually holding down Ukraine after a hard-fought 32:30 victory. After 60 minutes the result had stood at 26-all.
The previously dominant two Scandinavian teams, defending champions Norway as well as 1994 and 1996 winners Denmark, disappointed this time with Norway finishing 6th and Denmark 10th. Bronze went to Russia who beat Romania 21:16 in the match for third place.
