    In the universe of world records, .78 seconds is a lifetime.

    Michael Phelps about Kristóf Milák's WR:

    "As frustrated as I am to see that record go down, I couldn’t be happier to see how he did it,”

    “That kid’s last 100 was incredible. He put together a great 200 fly from start to finish.”

    “It happened because there was a kid who wanted to do it, who dreamed of doing it, who figured out what it would take to do it,”

    “(He) worked on his technique until it was beautiful and put in the really, really hard work that it takes to do it — my hat’s off to him.
