LOBANOVSKIJ Maxim (HUN), 22.23,
"I have been a little bit slower than I wanted to be. I can't say I'm not disappointed. I have swum a better time this year, I wanted to swim closer in time to my time with which I qualified for this event here in Budapest. It can happen that this was my first and last time at the world championships, but it was perfect for gaining experience"
TAKÁCS Krisztián (HUN),22.18, reached the final with 16th best time in men's 50m freestyle:
"I can't believe that with this time I could get into the semi-final. This year was a little bit slow for me in terms of my performance. I was afraid that I can't do my best here. Until the last moment, I thought that it won't be enough for the semi-final, but fortunately, I can come to swim in the afternoon in front of such a wonderful home crowd. I think that I can be better than this. It might be that the loud encouraging gave me the boost, it was a fantastic feeling."
MOLNÁR Flóra (HUN), 26.51, finished as 19th in women's 50m freestyle:
"This swim was too early for me, I couldn't feel the water so well. With my best time, I could have advanced to the semi-final but as a sprinter, it was extremely difficult to swim a good time in the morning. I'm happy about the 9th place, but I expected more from myself. To compete in front of the home crowd was a fantastic feeling though."
CSEH László (HUN), 51.55, reached the semi-final with the 10th best time in men's 100 butterfly:
"I can only say that on the first 50 metres everything was all right but in the second part something went wrong. I lost my energies a little and my movements weren't dynamic enough. I definitely have to correct this in the afternoon, this is my goal."
MILÁK Kristóf (HUN), 51.23, reached the semi-final with the 5th best time in men's 100m butterfly:
"It still gives me shivers to think of such a fantastic home crowd in front of whom I could compete with such a good starting time. I hope I can still speed up though. All in all, I had a great swim, I managed to start well, and after the lap, the dolphin went well, plus the finish, too. What I can still refine a little bit is the dolphin after the start. I baulked there a little, but if I manage to set this right, I can reach an even better time."
BURIÁN Katalin (HUN), 2:09.86, reached the semi-final with the 10th best time in women's 200m butterfly:
"So far this is my best morning time, actually, it's even better than what I planned. I didn't want to get too tired. But it was simply great and I feel that I still have a lot in me. I would like to swim a personal record in the afternoon. I hope my back won't stop me, but unfortunately, I'm only working with my left side because of an injury. We are working on it, so I hope for the best."
KAPÁS Boglárka (HUN), 8:28.93, reached the final with the 6th best time in women's 800m freestyle:
"Until 400m not too many things happened but after that, I saw that I needed to hurry up. I couldn't swim my best in the morning, I can do this better. I would like to show it in the final."
KÉSELY Ajna (HUN), 8:32.01, finished as 9th in women's 800m freestyle:
"This was absolutely good for a morning swim, I was one second behind my personal best. I put everything into this 800m, all my strength and secretly I wished for getting into the final. I could swim in three finals actually, so I can go home with a smile on my face. I won't have too much time to relax as the Youth Championships is still waiting for me; however, I'm happy that I can work through the whole summer. It has never happened before. I need to pull myself together mentally as it was a long competition period."
