The European Championships in Munich, Germany, to be held between August 11 and 21 and hosting nine different sports, begin this Thursday with preliminary estimates giving Spain a forecast of 28 medals, which would surpass that of the last edition — first of the European macro event – and a move up to thirteenth position in the medal table.

The organization of the European Championship Munich 2022 (ECM) predicts that Spain will achieve better results than the 2018 edition, when they won 19 medals, including three gold, six silver and ten bronze. Now the national team would win gold again with the new forecasts.

EMC bases this forecast on the results of all competitions before the European Championship. In the rankings, Spain would rise from 16th to 13th, but if they end up with 28 medals they would be seventh based on the 2018 standings.

The Europeans of these nine disciplines will start on Thursday August 11th, the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Olympic Games, to be held in the eponymous city of Munich. There, 4,700 athletes from 50 countries will gather for 11 days to share 177 gold medals.

The first trials are cycling, rowing, sport climbing and artistic gymnastics, with the latter being the first to be awarded medals on August 11th. The triathlon starts on Friday and table tennis on Saturday.

Once the weekend is over, track and field competitions, the sport in which most athletes participate, and beach volleyball begin on Monday. Finally, between the 18th and 21st, canoeing takes place, which is the last discipline to be contested.

Although at the 2018 edition, held in Glasgow and Berlin, the big winner was Russia with 66 medals, this time they will not be able to confirm their crown, which ECM forecasts will sit between Britain and Germany. Expected to make big gains is Hungary, tenth in the last edition, who is forecast to be in third place.

Behind, the ECM places the Netherlands, Italy, France and Ukraine, which despite the war are expected to receive more metals than in 2018.
