"I cried for the first time ever in the pool. I just could not help myself."

"I am so much happier now, a beautiful dream has come true. The world record means more to me than an Olympic gold medal, it means that there was a period when no one else was faster than me."

"I felt that I would win, but I tried not think of the record because focusing too much on that is not beneficial."

In men's 50 meters butterfly László Cseh wins bronze medal.
