Sweden finally got a bit of fortune on Wednesday during the 2012 Liebherr World Team Championships in Dortmund.
The opening three days of the tournament saw them continually crash to defeat, including a 3-0 loss against Hong Kong.
The Swedes still had a chance of clinching third place, but a couple things had to happen in order to achieve this goal.
Firstly they needed to beat Greece 3-0 and they needed Hong Kong to beat DPR Korea 3-0 as well.
Both results went that way with DPR Korea, Greece and Sweden all finishing level with seven points.
All three teams managed two wins and three losses, so in this case it is the results between the three teams that really mattered now.
Earlier DPR Korea had beaten Sweden 3-1, but had lost to Greece by the same margin. So on the match ratio Sweden secured third place with DPR Korea fourth and Greece in fifth spot.
