"My first reaction is a message: 'aki másnak vermet ás, maga esik bele...', the recipients understand what I mean. Otherwise, it was a good race, if I swim directly next to the Canadian swimmer, I get the silver. But the bronze medal is good too; if someone at home says you win bronze I accept it and don't even travel to Shanghai. Besides many things, I need to develop in tactics and also improve my turns. But the third place is a great result, especially because at home, I and my coach were humiliated and ignored altogether; the bronze medal is a warning that even in such conditions we could prepare and take home two medals” said Gergő Kis after the competition.

China's Sun Yang broke Grant Hackett's long-standing men's 1500 metres freestyle world record to win the gold medal at world championships on Sunday.

Sun clocked 14 minutes, 34.14 seconds to claim the gold. Canada's Ryan Cochrane took silver in a time of 14:44.46, while Hungary’s Gergo Kis earned bronze in 14:45.66.
