Istanbul, Turkey: Olympiacos wins Engin Bora Memorial Tournament

Olympiacos have won the Engin Bora (pictured) memorial tournament in Istanbul over the weekend. The Greek powerhouse remained undefeated in five matches including wins over Radnicki, hosts Galatasaray and Romanian champions CSM Oradea. Serbian runners-up and last year's Champions League finalists Radnicki proved the most difficult opponent but the Greek favorites held on to win that match-up 8-6. Radnicki and hosts Galatasaray shared 2nd place each losing two matches as Radnicki fell to CSM Oradea 8-7 on opening day on Thursday. But as Galatasaray topped the Romanians 10-9 on Saturday Oradea had to settle for 4th place. Most of the teams are set to be in action next weekend during the Champions League 2nd qualification round while both Radnicki and Partizan will have to play another round in the Regional league on Wednesday ahead of the Champions League action.
