Bronze start of XXX Summer Universiade

Grigori Pekarski won the bronze medal in swimming (50m butterfly) on the XXX Summer Universiade. His result is 23, 47 seconds. In the final Pekarski renewed his personal record.

“I still don’t believe that I have a medal. I’m satisfied. I have a long way to this medal and I’m really happy that I succeeded. This season was very difficult; we have done a huge amount of work together with my coach Igor Makeev. We solved my problems with technique. It was the first time I saw the opponents who stood with me on the podium, although I often go to the world competitions. You should always be prepared for the fact that teams can put "dark horses"”. 
"Grigori set a personal record in the semifinals – 23, 73 sec, and in the final he updated it. I think this "bronze" is his personal feat. He showed an excellent result, it is almost a qualification standard for the World Cup, which will soon start in Gwangju, Korea. We are grateful to the Ministry of education and the Republican Center of Physical Education for Pupils and Students for the opportunity to compete there. Swimming has never failed at Universiades, we can remember the successes of Aliaksandra Herasimenia, Yauhen Tsurkin, Svetlana Khokhlova, Ilya Shimanovich. Top-level sports should be based on University sports” Mark Zakutnev commented on the performance of the Belarusian athlete.
660 athletes from 72 countries take part in swimming competitions. Among them “stars” from the USA, Russia, Australia, Japan, Korea, Great Britain, France, Italy.
Grigori Pekarski studies at the Mogilev State A.Kuleshov University. The sportsman is 21 years old. On July 8, he will compete at the Universiade in the Olympic 100 m butterfly.
