Hungary’s Laszlo Cseh crushed the meet record in the men’s 100-meter fly at the 2016 European Championships.

Cseh clocked a time of 50.86, blasting the previous mark of 51.38 set by Konrad Czerniak back in 2014.  Cseh, with his 200 fly win, is the first man to sweep the 100-200 fly since 1995.

Cseh’s time also pushed him to the top of the world, clearing Li Zhuhao’s 51.24 from Chinese Nationals.  That’s Hungary’s eighth gold medal of the meet as well.

Czerniak, meanwhile, placed second in 51.22 to move to second in the world rankings, while France’s Mehdy Metella took third overall in 51.70.

Italy’s Piero Codia (51.82), Italy’s Matteo Rivolta (51.96), Poland’s Pawel Korzeniowski (51.98), Ukraine’s Lyubomyr Lemeshko (52.25) and Denmark’s Viktor Bromer (53.00) made up the rest of the final swims.

Very nice swim for Cseh but Phelps knocked out a 50.45 last Summer. Cseh will have to go another second faster if he has any chance at taking down Phelps in Rio.

Tamas Fekete I don’t think Cseh stands a chance there either despite how well he’s swimming now.
