300 (meters, not Spartans!)

300 (meters, not Spartans!)

Published: 7/4/2016

The athletes kept the best for the end! The last day of the AIDA Pool World Championships from Turku was also the most exciting with the men DYN podium having a world record on each one of its three steps: Oleksandr Bubenchykov came up at 289m and then we had not one, but two 300m dives! With no shades on the white of their cards, it was only a regulation detail on the announcements that helped deciding who gets the gold between the Greek Giorgos Panagiotakis and the Polish Mateusz Malina!

... and Poland owned again the first step of the podium. Not only on the men side, but also on the women side with Magdalena Solich that reached 232m, 17m better than the the silver medal of Julia Kozerska who, by the way, is also Polish! The only non-Polish "intruder" on the women DYN podium this year was the Danish Anette Rafen Ottzen with 176m.

The full results of the championships are available on the organiser's website here.
