Kapás Boglárka won the 200-meter butterfly at Foro Italico in Rome on Sunday night with a crowd-pleaser swim – we didn’t say all this, but that’s how her coach Balázs Virth described his two-hundred-meter student.
We know what it’s like, because we’ve seen it so many times in recent years, what our world champion can do in the second half of the distance, and even more so in the last 50.

Boogie came in the end like a tsunami, the crowd really enjoyed this final Balaz Firth told our newspaper. – He wanted to swim a time of 2:07, but also to win, so he went in search of safety: he watched the field, went to a hundred with his opponents, and then beat everyone well. Boogie is satisfied, as am I, but we also discussed that if he started a little braver, he might get a 2:07 score.”

It’s still an impressive victory, however, as Kapas (2:08.52) on Sunday took home his gold (2:08.86) at Kaposvár ob in April.

In addition to the gold medal, the Hungarian team also took home a silver and a bronze medal on Sunday: the first was won by Sebastian Szabo in the 50 butterfly – since September, the European champion from Gyor clearly gave priority to the 50 freestyle, being the Olympic number, while not The fifty are butterflies, but the latter doesn’t seem to let him down either.
