Barça have made it again: Thanks to five strikes in the penalty shootout in the final against Lomza Vive Kielce, the team of head coach Carlos Ortega became the first to defend the title since the premiere of the EHF FINAL4 Men in Cologne. It is overall the 10th trophy for the record winners, who also now stand alone at the top of the ranking for titles won in Cologne, with four now.

For me, it was the hardest game in my life since I am a professional. It was amazing with a lot of emotion. Finally, we won this final on penalties. It means a lot for me. I am proud of my team. We showed a lot of character yesterday and today, as both matches were not easy for us. Today we made history. We will enjoy this title, but still we want more.

It has been two intense days — a very intense but also very nice time. It's a childhood dream come true to be able to play here. Now it's time to come to terms with the defeat and the fact that we didn't reach the goal of our dreams.
