Israel’s Yakov Toumarkin will take part in his third final at the European Short-Course Swimming Championships in the last day of competition in Copenhagen on Sunday.

Toumarkin qualified for the final of the 100-meter individual medley from eighth place overall on Saturday, clocking a time of 52.80 seconds. The 25-year-old set an Israeli record of 52.50s in the morning heats.

Toumarkin ended the 200-meter backstroke final in fourth place in the opening day of action last Wednesday and on Friday finished fifth in the 200m individual medley. He clocked 1:54.66 minutes, 55 hundredths of a second slower than his time in the morning, that would have been good enough to claim a bronze medal in the final.

Toumarkin won two silver medals in the previous edition of the championships held at the Wingate Institute in Netanya two years ago, finishing in second place in the 200m back and 100m medley.

Amit Ivri ended the women’s 100m medley final in fifth place on Friday, touching the wall after 59.48s. Ivri came up short in her attempt to reach a second final on Saturday, finishing the 100m butterfly semis in 15th place (58.09s).
