Lilla Székely won gold medal in 100 meter surface women category Finswimming on Saturday. After the second day of the World Games the Hungarian team won one gold and one silver medals.

Lilla Székely went to this competition as her last one. The world class finswimmer attended the World Games in 2005 and 2009 as well.

"It's incredible, this was my last race, and I finished my career at the top. I was often upset in recent years because I have failed to deliver results that I'm capable of. Particular thanks go to sport psychologist Ágota Lénárt who helped my preparation," said Lilla Székely.

The biggest international event in the non-Olympic sports began on Friday in Cali, Colombia; one hundred countries participating in the event. Hungary is represented by 58 athletes of 12 sports.

At Taiwan World Games four years ago, Hungarian athletes won two gold, three silver and two bronze medals.
