Well, Henrikas Žustauskas that won the gold in canoe 200m. sprint is still getting credited as the European Games champion in every article even when he's being beaten by a two years younger athlete and not qualifying to the European/World championships anymore.

 

Of course, some may argue that Olympic changes and the removal of the 200m. may have impacted his results as he now had to make the switch to 1000m.

This mess, I forgot it existed ... I'm only interested because of Olympic standards. And drama/lulzes.

Definitely not here. Sport isn't the 1st page material here for obvious reasons ... unless it's football, boxing, tennis or fencing.

Well, here could be one of the few places, where these Games are considered a big thing. :d 2015 was treated like an important event by the media, you know the European Olympics, many sports, many nations, in one place, events after events, with medals, that we can and had won (unlike the actual Olympics :d). Even today i saw somewhere a somewhat countdown article "One year till the second European Games" :p

Interesting, here there's not even anything (no news, no page, nothing) about it on the NOC's website :p

Our NOC also gave it a quick reminder with a few pictures from Baku.

But I don't expect any results being front page material either.

Yep. Olha Kharlan is one of our sport icons. From men's magazine to the most popular political site with 500 000 visitors per day. +  She's got into 30 most successful Ukrainians under 30 Forbes list (with other young legends Usik & Lomachenko).
