FINA – Budapest2017: At swimming worlds, Hungary deserves biggest gold of all – SwimSwam

FINA – Budapest2017: At swimming worlds, Hungary deserves biggest gold of all – SwimSwam
by Rob Penner/SwimSwam

The World Championships came to a close earlier this month and it always takes a week or two to reflect back and absorb some of the great performances that we witnessed, along with the event’s overall impact on the sport and the global sporting landscape.

I have the unique perspective in that the last world championships I attended were the 1998 FINA World Championships in Perth, Australia. Yes, those were the last Swimming Worlds that did not have a swimmer named either Michael Phelps or Ryan Lochte competing in them — so my Worlds experiences have bookended the Michael Phelps era.
