Yakov-Yan Toumarkin (ISR) shone during the final of the 100m Back with a winning time of 55.20. Toumarkin's time just missed Laszlo Cseh's championship record of 55.02. Toumarkin now ranks 21st in Europe this year.
Bence Biczo (HUN) qualified fastest for tomorrow's 200m Butterfly final with an impressive 1:57.13. Biczo swam a superbly paced race splitting 26.54 - 56.70 - 1:26.16 - 1:57.13. 100 splits of 56 high/60 low are very strong especially given the fact that Biczo was born in 1993, the younger year at European Juniors and the only swimmer in the final to not be born in 1992. Biczo will be eligible to swim next year, however his focus now will be on the final where Marcin Cieslak (POL) looks like the strongest competition.
Medal Table after Day 2
Britain are proving to be one of the strongest teams in terms of depth in each event. Not only have they won more medals than any nation so far, they have an almost constant presence in semis and finals.
