During the European Championships in London on Wednesday, swimmer Gal Nevo won the first Israeli medal finishing second in the 200-meter individual medley.

Nevo completed the 200-meter individual medley in 1:59.69 minutes, narrowly losing the gold to Greece’s Andreas Vazaios, who completed the heat in 1:58.18 minutes.

It was the first medal at the competition for Israel, which sent its largest-ever team to the European Championships. The 2016 roster included 27 swimmers — four women and 23 men.

Along with five other Israeli swimmers, Nevo has already qualified for the Olympic Games set to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in August.
