STORY SCRIPT:

Russian swimming sensation Kliment Kolesnikov won his fourth and fifth gold medals of Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018, and he’ll go for his sixth on Friday in the 200m backstroke.

Kolesnikov broke the World Record of the 50m Backstroke at the European Championships in Glasgow in August and so it was no surprise that he added the Youth Olympic Games title to his resume in the Argentine capital. Kolesnikov, who won the men’s 100m backstroke title earlier in the week, then added another relay gold to his collection. After wins in the Mixed 4x100m Medley Relay and the 4x100m Freestyle Relay, Kolesnikov was part of the team that stormed to victory in the 4x100m Medley Relay final. Russia came home 3.48 seconds clear of their nearest rivals in a World Junior Record time of 3 minutes 55.17 seconds.

Anastasia Makarova, who was part of the mixed relay team with Kolesnikov earlier in the week, picked up her third gold medal of the Games, winning the 100m Breastroke final. She was too powerful for her opponents, Niamh Coyne of Ireland in silver and Lithuania’s Kotryna Teterevkova.
