Swimming speedsters Zsofia Foldhazi (HUN) and Aliaksandr Biruk (BLR) has won the swimming event in the mixed relay. They just touched out the pair of Gulnaz Bugaydullina (RUS) and Lukas Kontrimavicius (LTU) in an impressive time of 1:58.39. The winners from the fencing Anastasiya Spas (UKR) and Ilya Shugarov (RUS) managed a very good time and finished in 4th position to have a commanding 33 second lead going into the combined event ahead of Emily Greenan (IRE) and Jorge Camacho (MEX). However it is anyone’s race with the entire field only being just over a minute apart which is very unusual for the Combined Event. Stay tuned!
