    European Swimming Championships: Polish Women’s Relay Team Wins Bronze!

    The Polish women’s 4x100m freestyle relay team clinched the bronze medal at the European Swimming Championships in Belgrade. The team, consisting of Kornelia Fiedkiewicz, Zuzanna Famulok, Wiktoria Guść, and Aleksandra Polańska, delivered an impressive performance, finishing behind Hungary and Denmark.

    A Surprise Victory

    The Polish quartet clocked a time of 3:41.01, trailing the victorious Hungarian team, who finished at 3:36.77, and the Danish team, who came in at 3:38.48. Kornelia Fiedkiewicz got the team off to a strong start, securing third place in the first leg. Despite a brief dip in position during Zuzanna Famulok’s turn, the team remained competitive. Wiktoria Guść’s efforts restored their third-place standing, which Aleksandra Polańska valiantly maintained to the finish.

    This bronze medal is particularly remarkable given that the Polish team had only the seventh-best time in the preliminary rounds. Both Famulok and Guść had also competed in the 200m freestyle semifinals earlier, where they missed out on the finals but found their stride in the relay event.

    Other Polish Performances

    While the relay team’s success was the highlight, other Polish swimmers came close to medaling. Ksawery Masiuk finished fifth in the 200m backstroke final, and Dominika Sztandera narrowly missed the podium in the 100m breaststroke, finishing fourth. Krzysztof Chmielewski also put up a valiant fight in the 800m freestyle, finishing fourth, just 0.15 seconds shy of a medal, even after setting a personal best.

    Anticipation for Upcoming Events

    The championships continue, with more opportunities for Polish swimmers to shine. Fans can tune in to TVPSPORT.PL for live coverage starting at 18:30 on Thursday.
