The Polish women’s team holds a record that will probably never be equaled, let alone beaten in the World Championships. At the first finals in 1957 the Poles managed to defeat Romania by 3-0. The only match in a female World Championships, where one of the participating teams did not allow the opponents to score one single goal.
Since then the Poles have taken part at the World Championships 13 times without winning a medal. And in between, there have been a few times when they did not even qualify. Thus, the Poles with limited success only participated in two finals from 1999, until the Danish coach Kim Rasmussen at the last World Cup in 2013 led them to a respectable 4th place. Along the way, Poland in the knock out stages defeated strong nations like Romania and France. Led by experienced players such as Karolina Siodmak, Karolina Kudlacz and Alina Wojtas.
