Laia Palau, base of the Spanish national team, won his twelfth international medal in Belgrade this Sunday, leaving Pau Gasol behind.
Palau, who is close to turning 40, returned to set a model Eurobasket. The Catalan made history by becoming the player with more preseas national basketball.
The continental title to defeat France again is his twelfth medal with the selection between continental world tournaments and Olympic Games.
Although in 2017 he was withdrawn for a while, he returned to enjoy and shine again with the team directed by Lucas Mondelo.
The 'harvest' started with the bronze in the European Championship in Greece and since then has accumulated eight continental podiums, three world championships and one in the Games.
