Greek medal tally climbs to six at Debrecen

By George Georgakopoulos

Greek swimmers exceeded all expectations by collecting as many as six medals in the European Championship at Debrecen, Hungary, that concluded on Sunday.

After the gold medal that Aris Grigoriadis had got in 100 meters backstroke on Tuesday and the two bronzes that Panayiotis Samilidis got in 200m breaststroke and Yiannis Drymonakos secured in 200m butterfly on Thursday, the national team grabbed three more bronze medals over the weekend.

On Saturday, competition debutant Samilidis had a great finish in the 50m breaststroke final to snatch the third spot clocking 27.74 seconds.

Sunday saw two Greeks climb onto the podium, as Nery Niangkouara registered a new national record in 50m freestyle with a time of 24.93 sec, before Drymonakos secured his second bronze in this championship, at the 400m. individual medley, also with a national record of 4 minutes 14.41 sec.
