The Greek trio of Andreas Vazaios, Giorgos Spanoudakis in the 200m medley and Apostolos Christou in the 100m backstroke did well in the morning qualifiers and shows that it will continue.
17:49 – Men’s 200m mixed (semifinals) – Andreas Vazaios, George Spanoudakis
- Panhellenic record – 1: 50.85 Andreas Vazaios (2019)
- qualification to the final 2019 – 1: 55.01
Andreas Vazaios is defending his title, he has the best performance this year and he showed that he is in good condition. It will be difficult to stay out of the final and it is most likely to pass with the best performance. He swims in the 4th route of the 1st semifinal series, together with George Spanoudakis who will fall in the 2nd route. The breakfast 1: 57.17 was impressive for Spanoudakis who came down from 2: 01.34 which was his individual record. It will be a surprise if he manages to reach the final, it will not be a surprise if he makes a new individual record.
18:06 – 100m backstroke (semifinal) – Apostolos Christou
- Panhellenic record – 50.55 Apostolos Christou (2019)
- qualification to the final 2019 – 50.66
The 100 ari is a different race from the 50 ari that you do not manage to correct a possible mistake, as he stated yesterday in Sportsfeed Christou speaking to colleague Sotiria Stasinou. “I made a mistake in the turn of 25 meters and that also cost me a performance under 23 seconds,” said the leading Greek supine. In the afternoon semifinal, Christou will chase a performance close to the national record to ensure qualification to the final.
