As per usual World Cup Champion Katinka Hosszu did not take long before getting back into competition. Hosszu joined her fellow countrymen and women on the third day of the Hungarian National Championships in Százhalombatta.
Hosszu not only collected five national titles on her first day of competition, but she also set a new Hungarian national record in the 50 butterfly winning the event in a time of 26.17. Hosszu’s time breaks the record of 26.19 set by Eszter Dora in 2009.
Hosszu won the 400 freestyle in a season’s best of 4:01.46 and took home three more gold in the 100 backstroke (59.40), 200 butterfly (2:05.85) and the 400 IM (4:38.25).
Hosszu stole the headlines on day three of the competition, but Laszlo Cseh and Evelyn Verraszto were the stars of the first two days of the championships.
On the first two days of competition Cseh won three events and put up a top ten ranked time in the 200 butterfly, posting a 1:53.47. He also collected wins in the 200 IM (1:55.40) and the 50 butterfly (23.61). On day three he added the 100 butterfly (51.94) to his list of victories.
