KALISZ Chase (USA), 1:55.56, won the title in men's 200m breaststroke:

"I'm very happy that I can continue the tradition of Phelps and Lochte. Because of them I become a competitor who I am now. Last year wasn't the best for me, but I'm here now and I could win.  Representing USA and being on the top of the podium is more than everything. This is my first individual golden medal, I've never heard our anthem, so when I see the US's flag rising and hearing the anthem that will be the moment what I won't forget."

HAGINO Kosuke (JPN), 1:56.01, finished 2nd in men's 200m breaststroke:

was not available

WANG Shun (CHN), 1:56.28, won bronze in men's 200m breaststroke:

"I am very satisfied with the bronze medal. I was until the beginning of the month in a training camp in the USA, and after that, I went back home, to Beijing, so I still suffering from jet lag."

DRESSEL Caeleb (USA),47.17, won the title in men's 100m freestyle:

"I'm very excited about it, but more importantly, American one-two is more exciting. That's what I always want to see on the board. I'm very happy with my best time."

ADRIAN Nathan (USA), 47.87, silver medallist in men's 100m freestyle:

"I’m fine with the silver! 100 freestyle is always gonna close, but it is the nature of that event because there is a lot going on in the pool! It is really fun to be part of it. I am absolutely satisfied with the time and the whole year. This time is very close to my time last year, so it’s great! I think I’ll never be in a swimming arena like this again! The atmosphere and the home crowd is amazing!"

METELLA Mehdy (FRA), 47.89, finished 3rd in men's 100m freestyle:

"During the last 50 metres, I was very tired and did a few mistakes. This is why my arrival was not perfect and got beaten by Dressel. This was not a failure.Anyhow, if you want to go further you first need to get some failures."

MEDEIROS Etiene (BRA), 27.14, became World Champion in women's 50m backstroke:

"I'm so happy. Two years ago I was second, but now I'm the champion, so this is so important in my life. I want to thank my coach. This year is different from me. Now I'm so relaxed. Last night was so hard for me because I was thinking about the final. The fans are awesome. Hungarians are cheering for me, I love the city, and love the weather."

FU Yuanhui (CHN), 27.15, silver medallist in women's 50m backstroke:

"It was a very tight finish but in a crawl-stroke, this is absolutely normal. I'm not completely satisfied with my result, but, of course, I'm happy about my silver medal. Unfortunately, I couldn't swim my personal best, so I have a little feeling of want."

HERASIMENIA Aliaksandra (BLR), 27.23, finished 3rd position in women's 50m backstroke:

"Although deep in my heart I wished for a shinier medal, what is done cannot be undone. All in all, I can be very happy. Long years ago, I managed to gain a world championships silver and after such a long time actually, I'm satisfied with the bronze too. I always obtained my best results at the edge of the pool, so I was extremely happy that I could be there again. There is always less stress and tension there, what is more, it is usually out of the sight of the probable swimmers, so I like to benefit from it. I started competing from time immemorial, this way I count as an experienced swimmer. For me, the essential point is not that how old I am, but how old I feel. I'm in a good shape, I have some extra energy in me and I can still improve. This is my third time in Budapest, so I feel comfortable here. I put faith into the performance and besides I could see this magnificent city."

BELMONTE Mireia (ESP), 2:05.26, became World Champion in women's 200m butterfly:

"This is one of the best moment in my life. This golden medal was the last, which was missing from my carrier.  Rio is the best moment in my life, but this is an important moment. The key to win this final was the first 100 meters."

HENTKE Franziska (GER), 2:05.39, won the silver medal in women's 200m butterfly:

"I don’t know what I should say at the moment, I am absolutely speechless and I am so happy, that I was after a long time in a good shape at a top event.  When I saw the composition of the final I was sure, that only Mireia Belmonte, Katinka Hosszu and me can make a medal. I still cannot believe, that I got the silver!"

HOSSZU Katinka (HUN), 2:06.02, bronze medallist in women's 200m butterfly:

"I'm absolutely satisfied with the bronze medal. It was a really good competition. The time was encouraging. It was an unbelievable feeling to swim a final in front of such an audience. You can hear the cheering from inside, even from the water."

SZILÁGYI Liliána (HUN), 2:07.58, finished 7th place in women's 200m butterfly:

"I tried to swim according to our plans. I swam with the probable swimmers as long as I could, I put all my strength into it. It was interesting to be in lane one. I have never swum at the edge before at such a prestigious event. I'm very happy that I could swim a world championships final in front of the Hungarian audience. The heat itself didn't go as well as I would have wanted, but I would like to benefit from the gained experience. I become more with every single competition. There was and is more in me and now I feel that I'm on the right track at least I started going on it. Those who are beside me, they know what I'm talking about."

BERNEK Peter (HUN), 1:55.79, reached the final at 7th place in men's 200m backstroke:

"I'm happy that I managed to do the final. Finally, I have the time that I've been chasing for five years. The truth is that I would have wanted a little bit better swim, but I feel I still have some extra energy in me. In the morning I had a very strong heat, which took away some of my energies of course. Together with this, the swim now was a true 'have fun' experience. The race is extremely strong, the probable swimmers can swim 1:53. If I could go below 1:55, I wouldn't be interested my place. I hope I can swim two times tomorrow in the afternoon, which would mean that our relay is in the final. I have a difficult year behind me, chiefly because of my injury that held me back from preparation. And, although, I wouldn't say that I'm in a perfect shape, thanks to my coaches and doctors, who put a lot of work in me, I can be here, for which I'm awfully grateful."

TELEGDY Ádám (HUN), 1:56.69, finished 9th place in men's 200m backstroke:

"I've missed the final with half a second, it's too many. I didn't think that I can finish the ninth place. Actually, I'm disappointed, but in a positive way. I didn't expect this. I built up my swim differently than in the morning. I started a little bit weaker. The second half was better and I could speed up in the last 50 metres. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for the final, but it was enough for my personal best. Regarding the audience, I'm speechless, they're fantastic"

LEDECKY Katie (USA), 7:43.39, member of the winning team in women's 4x200m freestyle:

"It was a big victory for us, and we are happy today! I had no frustation about yesterday any more. The race was very close for long  but I had confidence in my other teammeats, that we can do it together."

WILSON Madison (AUS), 7:48.51, a member of the bronze medallist team in women's 4x200m freestyle:

"I think we were pretty well. It doesn't mean anything without the girls, being in there was the most  enjoyable part of the whole championship. A special moment when Annie was coming home, before the Russians, I was just screaming, and you can hear me from the stands. It was unbelievable."

In the women's 4x200m freestyle final, the Hungarian team finished 6th place:

JAKABOS Zsuzsanna (HUN): "We are happy that we could improve 4 seconds compared to our morning swim; however, it's a fact that Katinka joined us, which must be mentioned. It was an amazing experience to swim in front of the home crowd. I think we can be satisfied with this place. We need to work on our changes, but we are trying our best."

KÉSELY Ajna (HUN): "It was great to see from the pool how the crowd was encouraging and cheering us. Feeling this love is fantastic. I will try to advance to the final tomorrow on 800m so that I can live through this experience again."

HOSSZÚ Katinka (HUN): "There is a lot of potential in this team. The girls still need to get used to this finalist atmosphere and we also need to work on the changes. If we can do these, then we have the chance to gain medal in Tokyo."
