Hungary was next, with mega help from the Iron Lady Katinka Hosszu, Boglarka Kapas, Peter Bernek, Laszlo Cseh, Gergely Gyurta and more. Collectively they earned 2nd place as a nation, owning 13 medals with 9 coming from the women and 4 coming from the men.
Italy managed to race its way to 3rd place with 17 total medals, but fell behind Hungary due to 3 fewer golds.
At the 2015 edition of these championships, it was Hungary at the top of the food chain with an incredible 11 total gold medals, while Italy finished 2nd in the medal standings and Germany was 3rd. Although Hungary and Italy finished near the top again this time around, Germany fell to 5th place in the medal table standings, while Russia leapfrogged over several nations to improve upon its 4th place finish back in 2015.
