Lithuanian records and anti-records in the European Championship are firm, but not immovable

In the three decades since it became official FIBA member, the Lithuanian national team won five sets of medals in Europe – one gold, three silver and one bronze.

In total, 95 meetings were played in the continental championships during that time – 68 victories and 27 defeats.

Everything has happened, but the greatest achievements and, of course, records remain the most vivid in history. Some of them are really impressive, hard to move and have been around since 1995, while others are probably only a matter of time when they will be improved.
