Russia Overpowers Overall Medal Table In Copenhagen

EUROPEAN SHORT COURSE CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017

After dominating performances throughout the 2017 European Short Course Championships by Vlad Morozov, Kliment Kolesnikov, Aleksandr Popkov, Kirill Prigoda and others, Russia maintained a healthy lead in the medal table, which held through the end of the competition. Through all 40 events, Russia took the total medals to 18 in all, highlighted by 9 golds by the men.

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.

Hey bobo! Welcome back! What happened with regard to what? Your comment was probably kicked to moderation because it had so many outbound links in it – that’s a red flag for spam that our system pushes to ask for human review. Should be live now.

Gotcha. It’s an annoying feature, that I wish we wouldn’t have to use…but when individual comments or comment threads get longer, Google decides the content is “too long” and won’t index the article. So, collapsing them is the best solution we have to keep us from being kicked out of google altogether.
