A new gold medal for David Popovici. The Romanian sets a new world record in the 200 m freestyle

Popovici was followed by the Swiss Antonio Djakovic and the Italian Marco De Tullio.

The fastest in history

David Popovici (17 years old) achieved a formidable feat on Friday by winning the gold medal in the final of the 100 m freestyle at the European Swimming Championships in Rome with a time of 46.86 seconds, the best time in history for this event sample.

The world record for this event was held since 2009 by the Brazilian Cesar Cielo Filho, who, however, competed at the time in a polyurethane suit – this type of suit is no longer allowed.

Romania is represented at the European Championships by a delegation of 11 athletes. Athletes will participate in swimming, diving and high jump events.
