European Athletics Championships – Most Successful Athletes

The medal tally by East Germany's athletes in their golden era remains high in the statistics to date, even though Polish Irene Szewinska does own the title of the female athlete with the most medals. The Polish sprinter won gold medals in 100 m and 200 m sprints, sprint relay and long jump between the years 1966 and 1974. Szewinska got her last medals in the 1978 European Championships in Prague, as she won bronze in the 400 m sprint and in the 400 m relay. During her career, Szewinska won a total of 10 European Championships medals.

For men, Christophe Lemaitre stands on top of the list. The Frenchman has eight European Championships medals on his shelf, four of which are golden. He is followed by familiar names such as Mo Farah (6 medals) and one of the Borlee brothers, Kevin Borlee (6 medals).

For the coming years, a lot of movement is anticipated in the total medal statistics, as the condensed schedule of European Championships (every two years) will increase the chances to win medals.
