PEATY Adam (GBR), 57.47, won gold in men's 100m breaststroke with world championships record:
"I am really happy as it was 26.5, it is a new championship record, when I got to the back it was not easy but reserved, I am looking forward to the 50!
We have quite a young team after Rio, and I am a little bit now pushing myself because I do not feel anyone can push me right now in the country.
The venue is absolutely incredible, I knew it before, as I was here in March for the Arena shooting."
PRIGODA Kirill (RUS), 59.05, reached the third position in men's 100m breaststroke:
"Lane 8 has brought me luck before and it proved to be lucky this time as well...I had no idea about the standings while swimming, I am really happy about the third place, especially because after the Olympics I was rather devastated and now apparently I am back on track. I am glad I could breach the Russian record again, this was my goal before the World Champs, I managed to do so twice in Budapest. "
SJOSTROM Sarah (SWE), 55.53, won gold in women's 100m butterfly with world championships record:
"I am a little bit tired because of yesterday' race, but I was very excited for today! I could not wait for the start, I just wanted to jump into the water. The CR was not expected because I am focusing on the freestyle this year, and now I would like to see what will happen on the 50m free and butterfly."
McKEON Emma (AUS), 56.18, finished 2nd place in women's 100m butterfly final:
"I’m very happy with the silver medal. I knew it would be very hard to beat Sarah, she is faster than anybody. I’m satisfied with my times, I was faster heat by heat in Budapest."
WORREL Kelsi (USA), 56.37, got bronze in women's 100m butterfly final:
"It was a very tough final and I have noticed that Sarah split very fast. I pushed the second lap to secure the bronze."
PROUD Benjamin (GBR), 22.75, won in men's 50m butterfly:
"After the semifinals, I did not think for any medals, but when we finished today I was waiting that some of the other guys will be cheering and celebrating. Nobody did it, so it is great to be a world champion of the 50m butterfly but I am focusing on the 50m free right now."
SANTOS Nicholas (BRA), 22.79, won the silver medal in men's 50m butterfly:
"I am really happy that I could repeat my result of Kazan, although I almost stopped swimming in December. I have a boy now, actually tomorrow will be his 1st birthday and he is here with me so this medal will be a big present for him. At my age, it is not easy to be competitive with the youngsters, but fortunately my body is strong and I am focused on the proper food and rest so I can be still here. The young era helps me to keep doing my best from time to time. I would like to continue swimming next year as well, it depends on how my body reacts. The venue is fantastic, it is a kind of a mix of Barcelona and the Olympics in Rio, but I prefer this pool."
GOVOROV Andrii (UKR), 22.84, finished as a bronze medallist in men's 50m butterfly:
"I would not say I am satisfied. No question, I came to the World Championships to win, I had high chances because if I had managed to do my personal best I could have won. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to pull myself together, my moves were not perfect, I am really disappointed."
KOZMA Dominik (HUN), 1:45.87, finished 7th position in men's 200m freestyle semifinal:
"I wouldn't have bet my life on setting a new national record but I did tell Laci Cseh that I was bored with his record. Nine hundredths are still left, but tomorrow will tell. I am a bit disappointed about the 7th place finish because this was I am not going to swim in lane 2 which brought me some luck yesterday, but anyway, the external ones are OK, too. The 200m field is really strong this year, we did not really make up any tactics, my point was to enjoy the heat. In the morning I tried to reserve some energy, in the afternoon I put more effort into the race if I had been alert enough I could have reached to Townley Haas in the second place. I hope I will be talking to you with a medal in my neck this time tomorrow, anything can happen in the final."
HOSSZÚ Katinka (HUN), 2:07.00, won the women's 200m IM final:
"I guess there is no higher level than this: I have become a world champion in Budapest. I am deeply touched, it was rather hard for me to keep calm before the race in order to avoid becoming over-excited. I wished to do a better time result, but it doesn't matter now, it just feels amazing."
OHASHI Yui (JPN), 2:07.91, reached 2nd place in women's 200m IM:
"It was a good race for me, as my swimming was close to Katinka, but not enough. I did not notice she was so far away."
COX Madisyn (USA), 2:09.71, bronze medallist in women's 200m IM:
"It was a mad finish. I wasn't so good at my first half of the race, so I just had to push that back half I did not care where I was. I am very happy with this bronze as this is my first world championships at long course. Obviously, I would like to be better but that time will come and I am gonna keep working hard for it."
