Kristof Milak of Hungary set a new championship record in the men’s 200-meter butterfly this evening, sprinting to a 1:53.87 for the gold medal. As he is the current World Junior record holder in the event, he has been just a bit faster at 1:53.79. Nevertheless, he was light years ahead of the rest of the field – the silver medal went to Yuya Sakamoto of Japan in 1:57.05, while bronze went to Bulgaria’s Antani Ivanov in 1:57.54.

Ukrainian Denys Kesyl‘s time of 1:57.93 was good for fourth place, while Team USA took fifth and sixth in Andrew Koustik (1:58.15) and Nick Albiero (1:58.17).

Jacob Peters of Great Britain won seventh with his time of 1:58.40, while Spain’s Francisco Javier Chacon Mateos stopped the clock in 2:00.46 for eighth place.
