Second gold and new record for Marios Bilas at the European Swimming Championships


After Stergios-Marios Bilas’s gold medal win in the 50m freestyle, the Greek swimmer also took first place in the 50m butterfly with a new record, becoming one of the main protagonists of the event.

He also conquered this peak with the fantastic performance of 23.16 which is a new Pan-Hellenic record, breaking the record of Kristian Golomeev which was 23.19 in 2018 at the European championship.

“My only goal was the gold medal. I had a clear mind, I wanted to finish first and I succeeded. Now it’s time for a vacation” Bilas said. 

Austrian swimmer Bucher with 23.30 and Danish swimmer Nikkelsen with 23.57 followed Greek champion who brought the third gold for Greece and the sixth overall medal in the event. Greece won six medals in the event, three gold, two bronze and one silver.
