arena’s Elite Team swimmers broke 6 Championship Records and 1 World Record on the first two days of the European Short Course Championships in Netanya, Israel. Leading the charge (as usual) is The Iron Lady from Hungary, Katinka Hosszú, who set a new 400 IM world mark just a half-hour into the Championships. In the evening’s final, she couldn’t match her morning swim of 4:19.46, but still won comfortably with a fast 4:19.75. Katinka went on to break 3 CRs on the second day, winning 100 back in a time of 55.42, and leading the 100 IM prelims and semis with times of 57.52 in the morning and 57.49 in the evening.

First gold medal winner of the Championships was Poland’s Radosław Kawęcki, who set a new CR of 1:48.33 with his 200 backstroke victory. “Yesterday was really my day, I had a feeling it was gonna be a great day from the early morning, I had a good sleep and breakfast,” he said afterwards. “I also think that those Haribo jelly bears I ate in the morning also helped, I slept like a bear in between the races.” Radek leads the field going into tonight’s 100 back final.

Germany’s Marco Koch continued his great form of the past 18 months with a 200 breaststroke gold in a new CR of 2:00.53. Marco was just 0.05s shy of the WR set in 2014 by Hungary’s Dániel Gyurta, who came in second. Koch’s compatriot Paul Biedermann also enjoyed a successful two days in the last international SC championships of his career, with the 200 free gold and 400 free silver.

Swedish star Sarah Sjöström asserted herself in usual fashion with a 24.58 CR in the 50 fly final, along with the second-fastest 100 free semi. She and leading semi-finalist Ranomi Kromowidjojo of the Netherlands will battle it out for the 100 free crown tonight.

On the Championships’ second night, perennial champion and challenger László Cseh of Hungary celebrated his 30th birthday with the 100 fly title, the 17th of a glittering European SC career that goes all the way back to 2002 in Riesa, Germany.

Other arena medal winners over the first 2 days were Hannah Miley (Great Britain, 400 IM silver), Adam Peaty (Great Britain, 50 breast silver) and Sharon van Rouwendaal (Netherlands, 800 free bronze).
