Kristof Milak of Hungary flew to victory and a multitude of new records in the 200 fly finals at the 2017 European Junior Championships.

Milak delivered a final time of 1:53.79, easily downing the meet record of 1:55.82 set by fellow Hungarian Bence Biczo in 2010. His time also eclipsed the World Junior Record of 1:55.37, which was posted this past April by Japan’s Nao Horomura.

As if those two times weren’t enough, the 17-year-old also earned the European Junior Record by finishing ahead of the target record time of 1:54.79.

Milak’s 200 fly splits:

  • 24.69, 28.55, 29.47, 31.08 = 1:53.79

His new gold medal adds to his silver medal that he won in the men’s 50 fly.
