The Netherlands led the medal table with five golds, while Germany won the most medals with 11. Hosts Great Britain came second in both golds and medals. Russian sprinter Daria Shmeleva was the most successful individual athlete with three gold medals, while Great Britain's Laura Kenny set a new record for career European Championship titles with her eleventh and twelfth gold medals.
