Ukraine Lead Medals Table After First Day
- Ѳ   
03.07.2011

allianz_euros.jpgAfter winning five gold, five silvers and four bronze medals, Ukraine sit top of the medals table after the first day of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) European Championships.

 

Included in those 14 medal performances were two world records for Ganna Ielisavetska (1:07.15) in the Women’s 50m Freestyle S2 and Olga Sviderska (55.75) in the Women’s 50m Freestyle S3.

 

 

Great Britain also has 14 medals and sit second in the table due to having won less silver medals (three). Amongst their start performers were Jonathan Fox and Eleanor Simmonds who broke world records.

 

 

Fox (4:41.16) set a new world’s best time in the heats of the Men’s 400m Freestyle S7 and Eleanor Simmonds (5:25.20) set a new world record on her way to gold in the Women’s 400m Freestyle S6.

 

 

Susannah Rodgers (5:22.61) also broke a European record on her way to gold in the Women’s 400m Freestyle S7.
