Gábor FINANCSEK (HUN), finished at 43th place in men's 50m breaststroke:
"It wasn't a good start. I would have been satisfied with a time which is under 28. I have swum this time many times this year, so I'm not happy about it. I felt that there is a little slip at the start and that's enough at 50 metres to lessen the chances of reaching what you aim."
Adam PEATY (GBR), set a new world record in men's 50m breaststroke (26.10) :
"Yesterday after the 100m I felt my swimming might be as good as today also on 50m or even better. When I was waiting for my heat, I was calm and relaxed, but I didn't really think I would go for a world record in the morning. I just wanted to be the fastest, and of course, get into the semifinals. I am definitely happy, later I will try to decrease my time with a few hundredths, but that is not the most important."
Evelyn VERRASZTÓ (HUN), finished at 23th place in women's 200m freestlyle:
"I can't really say anything about what happened. The warming up went well and I was working hard all year long. However, I have never managed to swim less than 2 minutes in the morning, which is quite sad. Unfortunately, this is what happened. The Hungarian audience is fantastic, you get goosebumps seeing how many people came and it is amazing to experience this. It's a better feeling now because of them. There is yet the relay, so we need to fight for advancing to the finals, but it won't be easy as Katinka won't swim in the morning."
Tamás KENDERESI, after the preliminary of men’s 200m butterfly:
"I was planning this time exactly. I can say that everything is perfect. I still have to prepare for the afternoon. I think the aimed 1:54.9 time will be good for me, I just have to swim it."
László CSEH, after the preliminary of men’s 200m butterfly:
"I really liked this morning swim, I hope I still have some in me. I definitely wanted to swim well in the morning so that I can calm down and gain a little self-confidence. I managed to do this, not just because of my time but also because of the audience, too. It's unbelievable what they can do even before jumping into the pool. They hearten us with incredible energies. This is wonderful."
Gergely GYURTA finished at 21th place in men’s 800m freestyle:
"It's a wonderful feeling to swim here. It wasn't a pleasant swim. I have to tell that only three days passed after my 25km swim. We planned this 800m swim a warm-up. Obviously, it must have been great to swim better and under 8 minutes. There is a problem with my fastness. Preparation is completely different for a 25km swim, an 800m swim or a 400m relay. In the next 4 days, we are going to focus on speeding-up. Originally, we were preparing for the 400m relay. Our goal is to advance to the final. Fans help us a lot. There is a fantastic atmosphere here in the arena. This is an amazing experience. Every sportsman's dream is to swim in front of a home crowd at a World Championships."
