Hosszu, hold your horses! From now on breaking records becomes expensive. I know, She doesn’t listen to me and world record in 400IM will fall in the evening session after which Hosszu is a world record holder of every IM events in s/c.

I think this woman is impossible to beat in the World Cup this year. She has tremendous ability to challenge the best in their very own fields but no one comes even close in Hosszu’s own world, that is to say individual medleys.

The nature of the Hungarians in the training pool is something to be admired. I was very fortunate to train among them on their annual trip to South Africa. Chad le Clos, Myles Brown, Kathryn Meaklim and I would sometimes get the chance to do their sessions, and boy where they tough. That is why this girl can just get up and do it over and over again. Their Hard work is clearly evident in the pool.

Hinkelien Schreuder congratulated Hosszu on breaking her previous world record almost immediately on her twitter account:

“Couldn’t wish for any better place and athlete to break my world record in the 100m IM! Congrats @HosszuKatinka”.
