Courtesy of the Baku 2015 European Games on YouTube, we have race video of most of the finals from day 1. You can check out more videos from other sports at the Games by following this link.


From our day 1 finals recap:

The swimming events were not included in the original announcement of the games and its structure. Ultimately LEN would agreed to participate in the event July of 2013, but because of where the games were situated in the competition calendar they decided the swimming events would only include junior athletes.

Because of this fact Baku will replace the European Junior Swimming Championships, an event which will be held in Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary next year.

The games, which began on June 12th and will conclude on June 28th, will involve 6000 athletes from 50 countries in 20 different sports.
