Russia grabs first gold at athletics Euros
Stanislav Emelyanov crossed the finish line first at Men's 20-kilometer Walk.
The 19-year-old Russian led the race with Olympic 50-kilometer champion Alex Schwazer from the start, before the Russian eventually powered past the Italian, beating him by around half a minute.
"I tried to catch up with Emelyanov but he was in top shape today. Now I hope to recover in time for the 50-km walk," Schwazer told Reuters news agency.
Portugal's Joao Vieira took the bronze, while another Russian, Andrey Krivov, finished 6th, more than two minutes behind the winner.
