Day 1 of the 2019 World Junior Championships saw the United States claim 2 of 4 gold medals, with the men’s and women’s relays getting the job done to end the evening in Budapest. The combination of Jake Magahey, Luca Urlando, Adam Chaney and Carson Foster collectively clocked a winning 4x100m freestyle time of 3:15.80, a mark which obliterated the previous WJR of 3:16.96 from 2013.

The American women grabbed gold in the 4x200m free relay as well, with Justina Kozan, Lillie Nordmann, Erin Gemmell and Claire Tuggle hitting the wall in a time of 7:55.49 to win by over 2 seconds and give the stars n’ stripes its 2nd gold.
But additional nations came to play as well, including Spain, who saw Alba Vazquez clock a World Junior Record of her own in 4:38.53 to take gold in that event.
Hungary’s Gabor Zombori rocked the winning men’s 400m free time of 3:46.96 to re-write the Championships Record and get his nation on the board.
