Hungary’s Kristof Milak continued his 100 fly momentum by lowering his own World Junior Record (WJR) a third time in two days.

Milak had lowered it to a 51.23 in prelims, before qualifying for finals with a 50.77 in semi-finals, but he wouldn’t stop there. The Hungarian teenager flew to a final time of 50.62 to lower the record one last time. His efforts would earn him silver behind the USA’s Caeleb Dressel (49.86).

Comparative splits:

  • Milak (2017 – final): 23.85, 26.77 = 50.62
  • Milak (2017 – semi-finals): 23.72, 27.05 = 50.77
  • Milak (2017 – prelims): 23.90, 27.33 = 51.23
