"It's unbelievable ... I swam as fast as I could; I felt I was in the third or fourth place because I saw that others still swimming behind me. During the last fifty meters I was hurting badly. I also saw that Lotte has slowed down completely, and she saw me coming, I think the chaser is in much better position than the one who is chased." said Boglárka Kapás to the media when the event was over.
