European Championships: Switzerland’s Lisa Mamie Claims Gold in Women’s 200 Breaststroke

In a race decided by less than four tenths of a second, Switzerland’s Lisa Mamie touched the wall in 2:23.27 to earn the gold medal in the 200 breaststroke at the European Championships. Mamie held off Italy’s Martina Carraro, who finished in 2:23.64, while Lithuania’s Kotryna Teterevkova earned the bronze medal with a swim of 2:24.16.

Mamie was just behind Teterevkova after the 50, while she dropped to third after the 100 with Teterekova maintaining the lead. Teterekova continued to lead at the 150 mark before Mamie made her move. She split 36.92 in the final 50 to pass Teterevkova and surge to the gold medal.

“I’m very happy right now,” Mamie said. “I wanted to have fun here. This is my event and winning a medal, and it’s gold at a European Championships, this is absolutely fabulous.”

Denmark’s Thea Blomsterberg took fourth in 2:25.57, while the rest of the field was not under the 2:26 mark.

Czech Republic’s Kristyna Horska finished fifth in 2:26.07, followed by Italy’s Francesca Fangio (2:26.79), Ireland’s Mona McSharry (2:26.96) and Spain’s Jessica Vall Montero (2:27.19).

Mamie was the silver medalist in the 200 breaststroke at last year’s European Championships.
