  I na kraju ovog fenomenalnog Evropskog prvenstva odrzanog u Istanbulu u Turskoj bez ikakvih pretencioznosti, trebalo bi istaci - Novi srpski tim - Da se ne zaboravi... U godini kad je Nadja Higl napravila cudo na Univerzijadi 2009 i u Rimu 2009, u trenutku kad je bilo neophodno imati mozda i najbolje uslove za treninge, kad je u Beogradu na raspolaganju bio samo 50-m bazen na Banjici koji je namenjen vaterpolo sportu, u besparici i recesiji na svim nivoima, u Srbiji je rodjen novi "evropski i svetski" tim. Upravo zato je ovo Evropsko prvenstvo potvrdilo - dajte plivackom sportu uslove, i Srbija ce imati svetske vedete, kao sto je to slucaj trenutno u tenisu....
.....................................................................
I zato dobro zapamtimo ova imena: Nadja Higl (PK Tamis);  Ivan Lendjer, Caba Siladji i Miroslava Najdanovski (PK Proleter) Radovan Siljevski (PK Partizan); Milica Ostojic (PK Beograd), Boris Stojanovic (PK Vojvodina); Marica Strazmester (NC Alcorcon, ESP) ; Jovana Bogdanovic (PK Dinamo), Stefan Sorak (PK Banat)  i Andjelka Petrovic (PK Valis, Valjevo).
