After jamming his finish in the semi-finals, Kristof Milak executed everything right in tonight’s final of the men’s 100 fly, soaring to a new Hungarian and European Championship Record of 50.18.
Milak led the field at the 50 in 23.58, with teammate Szebasztian Szabo and Russian Mikhail Vekovishchev within a tenth, but pulled away from the pack on the second length, coming home in a blazing 26.60. James Guy went sub-51 for the second straight evening, touching in 50.99 for bronze, and Poland’s Jakub Majerski had another 26-point back-half split (26.88) to take fourth in a new Polish Record of 51.11.
