Zsolt Plagányi has the opinion, his competitor is not just able to win in London in 200m butterfly, but could get over the European record, which he swam 8 years ago.
The unique member of the Hungarian swimming team has reached this unbelievable time -1:52.70- in the Olympic final, in Beijing. The greatness of this time can be seen if we compare it to the winner-time of László Cseh of the Kazan Word Championships, which is 1:53.48.
“Laci is in a very good shape, which should be enough to get into the final, and to win it”- said Zsolt Plagányi to the official website of the WCH. He could not take less stride on the result on Wednesday morning, I can say, he could not cut down more on his efficiency. I respect Tamás Kenderesi, who really wants to get in the near of Laci. I am very happy, we have opposers in the Hungarian team as well, who can achieve huge results in the future. I congratulate Tamás and Imre Tari, his coach!
It can encourage László Cseh, and Zsolt Plagányi, that the two times world champion has been elected to the best swimmer of Europe, as Katinka Hosszú. The celebration did not bring any news, because the result was known before, but the European Swimming Federation waited for the suitable event and time to celebrate it.
„ I have already known before the start, that I need to make sacrifices, because of the tight time-table, and it came true. I am really sorry for the 200m IM, but if I can win on Thursday, with the time my coach has written on a piece of paper, I will remember for the win and the happy Thursday evening, not for the back out. – said László Cseh, who is not just standing before the challenge of the 200m butterfly, but the 100m as well. He is on the way to achieve some similar success at the World Championships next year.
