For the U18s it was a bronze in 97 but that was still just the Euro championship though. At the actual worlds it was just one silver in 2001.
They also were in SF in WJC in 2002 I think (beat Slovakia who had previously won their group narrowly in the QF).
And they also had already been in the SF of menīs WC in 1992, where they lost the bronze medal game to the host Czechoslovakia, I believe.
But at none of the levels they have reached a gold medal and they have not reached a medal at the menīs level since 1953.
