The 2018 Hungarian National Championships have concluded, and Kristof Milak has put down another impressive swim. In the men’s 100 fly, Milak posted a 51.50, well ahead of 2nd place Laszlo Cseh (52.46). While that time is off of Milak’s Hungarian record of 50.62 from last summer, it puts him fourth in the world rankings this season.
Milak also raced the 50 back, taking the title in 25.23, just ahead of Bence Szentes (25.25). Milak turned 18 in February.
Milak could not get to the wall first in the 200 free, though, as Dominik Kozma edged ahead of him. Kozma was 1:47.16, ahead of Milak’s 1:47.97 and Nandor Nemeth‘s 1:48.42.
16-year-old Ajna Kesely took two wins tonight, first in the mile and then in the 200 free. She was 16:33.97 in the mile, the only swimmer under 16:40. In the 200 free, her time of 1:59.62 was the only time under two minutes. Evelyn Verraszto finished 2nd (2:00.42), and Verraszto finished on top earlier in the 100 fly (59.57).
In the men’s 50 breast, Csaba Szilagyi swam a world’s top 5 time to win. His time of 27.05 won by over a full second, and he now sits 5th in the world this season.
- Katalin Burian was 29.05 to take the women’s 50 back.
- In the women’s 50 breast, Anna Sztankovics was 31.65 to win.
