As if that weren’t enough, the nugget of French swimming signed, in the Budapest swimming pool, a new best French mark and, therefore, a personal record. “I had focused on the 200m medley at the base.

I went directly to recover after my race, I put on my outfit and on the podium I was already thinking about another race”reacted the young French champion.
