Hungarian Swimmer Kristof Milak Smashes Michael Phelps’ Record

first_imgGWANGJU: Hungarian teenager Kristof Milak shattered Michael Phelps’ 10-year-old world record in the 200 metres butterfly while Adam Peaty sewed up a third straight breaststroke double with victory in the 50 metres at the world aquatics championships in Gwangju, South Korea on Wednesday. Budapest born Milak won gold in a time of 1:50.73, lopping 0.78 seconds off Phelps’ 1:51.51 set in Rome in 2009. “It’s a tremendous honour to set such a great record,” he said. “Until 14 I was a backstroker and later I focused on the butterfly. But earlier I only did 100 metres because I wasn’t strong enough.” There can be no question about his strength now. At 19, Milak is the youngest winner of the 200 metres butterfly since Phelps triumphed as an 18-year-old in 2003, the second of the American great’s five world titles in the event.
