The European Athletics Championships came to an end on Wednesday in Rome. On the last day of the competition, the Romanian athlete Alina Rotaru-Kottmann ranked 9th in the long jump finals. Her best jump was 6 m and 68 cm. The gold medal was won by the defending Olympic champion Malaika Mihambo from Germany, with 7 m and 22 cm, the best result of the season. In Rome, Joan Chelimo Melly from Romania won a silver medal in the half-marathon. The Romanian delegation comprised 24 athletes, 15 of whom competed in women’s races and 8 in men’s races.

The European Aquatics Championships are under way in Belgrade until Sunday, 23rd June. Romania is represented by seven swimmers and four divers. The main favourite is David Popovici, who will compete in the 100 and 200 m freestyle races, where he is defending European champion. He will also be part of the 4X100 m freestyle relay. The competition in Belgrade is the last chance for Romanian athletes to qualify for the Paris Olympic Games.

The European Championships in canoe sprint, paracanoe and stand-up paddling got under way in Szeged, in Hungary, on Wednesday. The competition is a good test for athletes ahead of the Olympic Games. Three Romanian athletes who have already qualified for Paris are taking part: Cătălin Chirilă in canoe single 1000 m and Oleg Nuţă  and Ilie Sprincean in canoe double 500 m. In Szeged, Chirilă will compete in the 500 m, 1000 m and 5000 m races, and Nuţă and Sprincean will compete in the 200 m, 500 m and 1000 m races. At the 2023 European Championships held in Poland, Chirilă won the silver medal in the men’s canoe single 500 m.
