Twenty-six-year-old Giedrius Titenis participated in a 50-meter breaststroke event. He was fifth with the time of 26.38 seconds and broke the second Lithuanian record on the tournament. The previous Lithunian record for 50-meter breaststroke was set by Titenis himself just nine hours previously at the same championship.

Twenty-year-old Danas Rapšys participated in a 200-meter backstroke event and finished the distance in 1 minute 51.03 seconds, which put him at the fourth place. Still, he also broke the Lithuanian record.

Seven Lithuanian swimmers are competing in the European Swimming Championship in Israel: Giedrius Titenis, Mindaugas Sadauskas, Danas Rapšys, Andrius Šidlauskas, Povilas Strazdas, Gytis Stankevičius, Deividas Margevičius. Lithuania‘s swimming star Rūta Meilutytė had to miss the championship as she is still recovering from an arm bone fraction.
