CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 17. THE Hungarian Iron Lady Katinka Hosszu is super stoked after taking down the Hungarian record in the women’s 200-meter free last night.

Hosszu has been chasing Agnes Mutina’s 2009 record of 1:56.47 for a long time, and she finally broke into the 1:56 range with a new record time of 1:56.30. Hosszu explained how she’s routinely been hitting 1:57 over and over in the past few years, and is happy to finally get this record.
