Moravcová takes 4 medals

Swimmer Martina Moravcová, 25, took three gold medals and a silver at the European championships in Antwerp on December 15.

Moravcová came second in the 100 metres freestyle and the following day won the 100 metres medley. She went on to win two gold medals within a 30 minute span; one for 100 metres butterfly and the other in 200 metres freestyle, breaking her own European record in the latter by 0.36 seconds.

Confident of her victory, Moravcová sent a camera to Slovak journalists before the finals asking them to take a picture of her standing on the winner's podium. She also improved her personal best in the 100 butterfly by 0.34 seconds at 57.2 seconds.

"I'm very satisfied with the personal bests, medals, and my feeling in the water and I'm happy about the European record," she said. "I wasn't attacking the world record today but it may come eventually."
