Germany etched its name in the annals of basketball history, attaining the pinnacle of global success for the first time. They clinched the coveted gold medal by triumphing over Serbia in the 2023 FIBA World Cup Final.
A central figure in this much-anticipated clash was Johannes Voigtmann, who concluded the game with a remarkable 12 points and 8 rebounds, shooting an impressive 4/5 from the field.
In the moments that followed the game, Voigtmann bared his emotions in the mixed zone.
“I just saw the trophy and it’s gonna say Germany for eternity,” Voigtmann said. “It’s gonna be Germany on that thing. We’re gonna realize in the next couple of days, maybe weeks or months what we’ve done here.
“For us, we’re gonna just enjoy it. We had some bad times, we almost didn’t qualify for EuroBasket 2016. We fought back.”
