NC State swimming seniors Nyls Korstanje (Netherlands), Andrea Podmanikova (Slovakia) and Kacper Stokowski (Poland) and Wolfpack alumni Sophie Hansson (Sweden) and Andreas Vazaios (Greece) wrapped up competition for their respective nations at the 2022 European Aquatics Championships.

Among the five swimmers, the Pack was represented in the finals of six individual events over the course of the week-long meet at the Foro Italico pool in Rome.

Hansson, who just earned her NC State degree in May, won a gold medal as part of Sweden's 4x100-meter medley relay team. Her 1:06.26 breaststroke split helped the squad to a time of 3:55.25 for the top finish. Hansson also reached the finals in the 50-meter breaststroke (sixth - 31.02) and the 100-meter breaststroke (sixth - 1:07.31).

Korstanje put together a solid week in the pool ahead of his return to Raleigh for the upcoming academic year. He claimed a title in the 4x100-meter mixed medley relay with a 50.72 butterfly leg in Netherlands' 3:41.73 win. He also took fourth place in the 50-meter butterfly (23.10) and seventh in the 100-meter butterfly (51.79) as he finaled in both of his individual races.

Stokowski advanced to the final in the 50-meter backstroke, where he placed sixth overall in 24.99, and he also made a semifinal appearance in the 100-meter backstroke.

Podmanikova joined Hansson in the field for all three breaststroke events, and Vazaios swam a trio of events himself, highlighted by a sixth-place finish in the 200-meter individual medley (1:59.55).
