European Championships 2018: Best Eyewear Looks

The European Championships is a brand new sporting event, which launched in August.

It is due to take place once every four years – uniting the best sports stars in Europe.

This year’s event was held between the 2nd-12th August 2018, with locations in Berlin, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Gleneagles.

Many different sports were included in the schedule such as synchronised swimming, BMX, diving and artistic gymnastics.

At the end of the championships, it was revealed that Russia was the overall winner – claiming the top spot on the leaderboard after the 10 days of events.

As well as awesome sporting performances, it is safe to say that there were also some fantastic examples of eyewear from the athletes.

Take a look at some of our favourites below.

Matteo Trentin

For the occasion, he was sporting a royal blue coloured lycra zip up top – the slogan detailing is very striking.

He has paired it with some black and grey cycling shorts, complete with matching socks, trainers and gloves.

His choice of shades here are extremely appropriate for his chosen sport.
