It’s the first gold in 100m backstroke, I’m very happy, since 2016 I’ve been on the podium continuously and I end up with the gold this year. The time for Paris is very encouraging, that is, it is gold medal time, regardless of competition. I was close to Vangelis, I could feel the fatigue coming over me, I didn’t realize I was going so fast, but I saw the time and it was a very good race“, he said to the ERT3 camera.

Regarding the great success of Golomeev and Bilahe said: “I saw it and said they caught us, because I was sure we would, because today we were very good with Vangelis. It is very pleasing that the children did it, because their times are very good against the background of Paris».
