2014 European Championships: Post-day 1 medal table

Night 1 of the 2014 European Championships is now behind us, and the first four gold medals have been given out.

The medal table for pool swimming doesn’t tell us much at this point; it’s pretty sparse. Things will pick up tomorrow as the day 1 semifinals resolve into medal heats on night 2, but for now, no country has doubled up in gold medals. France, Serbia, Hungary and Sweden currently lead with a gold apiece. Italy had the deepest medal showing of day 1, taking home two bronzes and a silver. Great Britain has claimed two bronzes.

Rank Country Gold Silver Bronze Total
1 France 1 1
1 Serbia 1 1
1 Hungary 1 1
1 Sweden 1 1
5 Italy 1 2 3
6 Russia 1 1
6 Spain 1 1
 6 Netherlands 1 1
9 Great Britain 2 2

When you add in the other disciplines, things fill out a bit more. Synchronized swimming and open water have wrapped up their competitions, and diving has competed in the team event, with the individual and synchro categories still to come.

Russia leads the medal count here, buoyed by its sweep of three of the four golds in the synchronized swimming events.

Rank Nation Gold Silver Bronze Total
1 Russia 4 2 1 7
2 Netherlands 3 2 0 5
3 France 2 0 0 2
4 Ukraine 1 3 1 5
5 Germany 1 2 4 7
6 Hungary 1 2 0 3

Its like that chinese guy in the youth olympic games articles said: China is the new superpower in swimming, there will only be some crumbs for other nations like usa left, you should get used to it and this meet is a good opportunity to do that.
