M200 Butterfly: Laszlo Cseh World Champ Anew 10 Years On – Giant Of Longevity

Laszlo Cseh - a giant of longevity - by Patrick B. Kraemer

Laszlo Cseh. World Champion. The last time we write it was a decade ago. The Hungarian defeated the “Phelps Slayer” defending champion Chad Le Clos (RSA) in classic style, playing cat to the South African mouse to half-way, piling on the pressure and passing his quarry down the third lap and then playing lead role in what Le Clos knew he was in for: a dog fight

Well deserved – if there is anyone who deserves it, it is Laszlo 🙂 Finishing second to Phelps and Lochte so many times, 9 out 10 would have retired from the sport.

Agreed with very deserving Cseh.

Also, I hope Hoshi wins tomorrow. She also totally deserve it. She has the best stroke technique of all 200 flyers.

Groves lives up to her billing again.

Hosszu might have been spent after her 200 IM. She looked …gasp… tired!

Eugene

Chad’s dad must have had heart attack according to his reaction to the final meters of the race 🙂

Kim Simonsen

Almost as good a show as watching Hosszu´s spouse 🙂

Chris Dolan

Yes well done Cseh, totally deserved.

Haakon Stokke

Absolutely agree – well deserved!
Will not help him in the 100 though. That one belongs to Le Clos with Tom Shields right behind. Shields has the perfect 100 technique, exellent starts and turns, and should rebound well from a lacklustre 200 performance. Do not think Cseh’s newfound speed will help sufficiently; LeClos is a better closer, if you will.

Tom Taylor

Its a bad joke and embarrassing to put Phelps on the first place. Do you know who is the Official World Champion in 2015? Laszlo Cseh, the rest is just your bitter opinion..

Phelps had no pressure on him in the us championship, plus he didnt fought against the world best swimmers.. He was not there to show his real performance.
