The Roma 2022 butterfly champion Milak (HUN): "I prefer hard work to fame"

Today is the final day of the swimming competition. The European Championships have been very successful for Hungarian Kristóf Milák, who won three gold medals in Rome: in the men's 100m and 200m butterfly, and in the men's 4x200m freestyle relay. In addition, he took silver in the 100m freestyle and in the men's 4x100m freestyle relay.

The 200m butterfly world record holder is always trying to improve, despite his successes and records. "I am never satisfied," said the multiple Magyar champion, "I always want to win against myself and that is what I try to do. I prefer hard work to fame."

Although he is one of the world's top swimmers, Milák continues to work on himself. "I focus on my swimming," the 22-year-old swimmer continued, "Small details are crucial to grow in swimming: talent, experience, and hard work together lead to big achievements."

The rising young talents do not seem to bother Milák for now. "I think today's young athletes, in a few years, will represent a significant challenge for me too."

Following his sensational results at the last world championship, Milák ended his season in Rome. "Competing in Budapest was different. I felt the love of the home crowd, but also in Rome the fans respect me and I am happy to be here."
