Teen age swimmer from Hungary, Kristof Milak broke Michel Phelps’ world record in the 200 meters butterfly on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Adam Peaty sewed up a third straight breaststroke double with victory in the 50 meters at the world championships.
Kristof Milak was born in Budapest. The record that he broke yesterday was 10 years old. Kristof remarked after his success, “It is a tremendous honor to set such a great record. Until 14, I was a backstroker and later I focused on the butterfly. But earlier I only did 100 meters because I wasn’t strong enough.
Kristof Milak is the youngest winner of the 200 butterfly since Phelps triumphed as an 18 year old in 2003, the second of the American greats five world titles in the event.
Peaty also secured some major victory Sunday, becoming the first swimmer to go under 57 seconds in the 100 breaststroke semi-finals and while he couldn’t repeat the feat in the 50 he was still streets ahead of his rivals.
