The first day of competition will also see the women line up in the 400m individual medley final, on a night which concludes with 4x50m free relay events for both genders.

The sprint showdowns in the women’s 50m freestyle and men’s 50m backstroke finals will be two of the major draws on the second night in Romania, before the men take on the 50m free distance 24 hours later.

Day three will also see Ukrainian Mykhailo Romanchuk seek his first European Short Course title since 2017 in the 1500m freestyle, while Kira Toussaint of the Netherlands will aim to defend the 200m backstroke crown she claimed in Kazan two years ago.

Home favourite and world record holder David Popovici will be one of the major draws in the 100m and 200m freestyle events – across days four-six.

His battle with 2023 World 200m freestyle champion Matt Richards, is one of the most highly-anticipated contests of the competition.

The final night – day six – will see athletes battle it out for 11 gold medals.
