The podium results were something of a red, white and blue fest, with the British team collecting 58 of the 74 medals issued. That haul included 18 of the 27 Gold medals awarded. While 13 nations were represented, 163 of the 221 starters (74%) were in GB colours, with the home Romanian team (20), the only other nation to hit double figures in terms of athletes racing.

Here is the breakdown, which includes the fastest times of the day recorded by Bruce Raeside and Nicole Allan. While Bruce has previous earned Silver (2017) and Bronze (2018) in Soria and Ibiza respectively, that was actually a first international start for Nicole.

🥈20-24 in European Sprint Duathlon Championships and 2nd female overall! Awesome last Championships race as a 20-24, tactical, fast and SO much fun! I paced the first run well (for once), got on to the bike and in to the leading female pack whom all worked together super well, legs felt great off the bike but couldn’t quite match @nicoleallan19 sprint finish! We were both shocked to discover we were the leading females, something I have yet to achieve in a Championship race! Smiles all round as @_hugh.harris_ got himself a 🥇!! This race marks the end of my main triathlon/ duathlon season this year and it’s nice to end on a high! Time to rest, enjoy the sun and drink some funky Romanian bevs! ☀️🍸Thanks to @mfpowell.66 as always for her wide words of coaching mummy wisdom, @_kingssport @connorliftsstuff for all the 🏋🏻‍♀️support this year, @hokaoneone #racerprogram for my new awesome racing shoes, @sundried @waitroseandpartners @johnlewisandpartners #JLP #runbikerun #eurochamps #duathlongirl #duathlon #eurochamps #transylvania
