David Verraszto runs afoul of Hungarian federation with comments about importance of European Championships
Hungarian swimmer David Verraszto reached the top of the podium in Berlin last week at the European Championships, but the gold medal might not mean as much to him as you’d think.
Fran Halsall won gold in the women’s 50 free to cap off a dominating week for the Brits. Great Britain led all of Europe with 9 gold medals in the pool and 24 total pieces of hardware.
With some of France’s top stars absent, it was an international free-for-all at the French Open. Katinka Hosszu won three events and David Verraszto, two; James Magnussen had a solid 100 free; and Lauren Boyle broke the meet record in the 800.
Nathan Adrian picked up a win in the 100 free and pushed through as the top seed in the 50 free on day of the 2014 Mare Nostrum-Monaco meet.
