Australian goalball fans saw national history in the making as their 19 and under women's team won the country's first-ever gold medal in a major international goalball competition by defeating a very talented Russian women's team 9-6. 

  In the men's competition, Team USA made their first trip to the top of the medal podium in recent years as they bested an extremely tough Brazilian team 7-3.

  In other matches, Russia squeezed by host country Hungary with a 7-6 score which send them home with the bronze medal.  In the women's bronze medal match, Brazil and Germany played a very low scoring match with the Brazilian women coming out on top with a 2-0 win.
