The bronze medal is the crown on our performance.” Guzi also mentioned that her swimming performance exceeded her expectations.

The gold medal went to Britain, while Germany secured the silver medal. The Hungarians’ success continued on the first day with the men’s relay event, where the duo of Bereczki and Koleszár delivered an outstanding performance. They finished second in the competition, with the Hungarian team achieving the best overall time of 11:50.56.

Bereczki highlighted the team’s efforts by stating, “After a long season, this silver medal is worth it.” He also expressed their goal of aiming for a medal in the individual competition after a day’s rest. Koleszár added, “We wanted to give our best in all the events. In front of our home crowd, this silver is almost gold. It was a great experience to compete at home.”
