During the final of the men’s 50 fly at the 2019 World Junior championships, 16-year-old Josif Miladinov swam his way to a bronze medal and Buglarian national record.
In the semifinals, Miladinov first set the national record with a 23.60 to tie for third into the top 8. In the final, Miladinov dropped down to a 23.48 to secure bronze and re-break his day-old national record. This bronze is now Bulgaria’s first medal of these championships.
Earlier in the meet, Miladinov lead the prelims of the men’s 100 fly with a 51.91, also setting a Bulgarian national record. In the final, however, Miladinov got touched out by 0.06s to finish fourth and off the podium.
Miladinov also is a member of the 4×100 medley relay and 4×100 free relay national record teams to bring his national records count to four.
