STORY SCRIPT:

The final night in the pool was one to remember for Russia’s swimming sensations Kliment Kolesnikov, Andrei Minakov and Polina Egorova. They each won individual gold medals, but were denied the perfect finale at the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.

China stormed to gold in the 4x100m Mixed Medley Relay, leaving Kolsenikov, Minakov and Egorova to settle for silver.

Kolesnikov won his sixth gold when he added the men’s 200m Backstroke title to the 50m and 100m Backstroke, the men’s 4x100m Medley Relay and 4x100m Freestyle Relay titles he won earlier in the week.

The 18-year-old finished over two seconds ahead of his nearest rival, Romania’s Daniel Cristian Martin, who took silver. Manuel Martos Bacarizo claimed bronze.

Andrei Minakov also won his sixth gold with victory in the men’s 100m Freestyle. Minakov won individual golds in the 50m and 100m Butterfly and relay golds in the the men’s 4x100m Medley, 4x100m Freestyle and mixed 4x100m  Freestyle.

Polina Egorova struck gold in the women’s 100m Butterfly. Her time of 59.22 secs was enough for her first individual gold of the Games, and goes with her two relay golds, in the women’s 4x100m Freestyle and mixed 4x100m Freestyle.

China’s quartet of Guanbin Wang, Jiajun Sun, Xintong Ling and Junxuan Wang finished over a second ahead of the Russians to bring the swimming event to a close.
