Hungary’s Boglarka Kapas was behind the leaders for the first 150 meters in the women’s 200 fly final, but she stormed home in 32.92 over the final 50 meters to come into the wall first at 2:07.13. That swim moved Kapas into No. 5 in the world rankings and was a nice boune-back effort for the 25-year-old after a surprising and disappointing fifth-place finish in the 800 free.

Russia’s Svetlana Chimrova finished hard to sneak into second, just ahead of Great Britain’s Alys Thomas. Chimrova swam a time of 2:07.33 to rank eighth in the world, while Thomas, the top-ranked swimmer in the world at 2:05.45, came in at 2:07.42.

Germany’s Franziska Hentke, the top seed coming out of semi-finals, faded to fourth in 2:07.75.

Also in the final were Portugal’s Ana Catarina Monteiro (2:08.03), Hungary’s Liliana Szilagyi (2:08.69) and Italians Ilaria Cusinato (2:08.91) and Alessia Polieri (2:09.25).

Sosem késő váltani. Ha nem megy a 800 free nem kell erőltetni. ?‍♀️?
