7:17 p.m .: The king of the swimming pool on France 4: “It’s incredible, I had seen two French people win a medal before. I really liked this position, I was in the middle, I could control what was happening. It was cool. »

7:14 p.m .: After gold in the 400m medley (and silver in the 200m butterfly), Léon Marchand won the 200m 4 medley quite easily in 1”55’22, 5 tenths ahead of the American Carson.

19h13: CHAMPION DU MONDE !!!!

7:12 p.m .: Léon Marchand in the lead after the breaststroke.

19h11 : The American Carson in the lead on the back. Merchant 3rd.

7:10 p.m.: IT’S ON WITH THE BUTTERFLY.

19h10 : The Léon special: he strips off last while his friends are already in their jerseys.

7:09 p.m .: HERE IT IS!!! LEON MARCHAND, AT LINE 4…

19h08 : The swimmers in the 200m medley final line up one after the other. With the ovation for the Hungarian Hubert Kos (19 years old but it seems 15).

7:06 p.m .: Come on, we are approaching the new coronation of Léon Marchand (yes, I am on fire).

19h01 : The official ceremony of the 100 m: Maxime Grousset receives his silver medal. But it’s the Romanian anthem that we’re going to hear with the phenomenal David Popovici (17 years old!!!), already crowned in the 200m. Joshua Liendo Edwards, the Canadian, completes the podium.

18h57 : The Australian Stubblety-Cook wins with a whistle in this second semi-final of the 200m breaststroke, in 2’06”72.

18h54 : The second semi-final of the 200m breaststroke is now. As a reminder, Léon Marchand would have aimed for gold if he had presented himself in this event. But due to a concern with the competition calendar, he favored the 200m butterfly, where he was silver. He will be present over this distance, however, during the European Championships in Rome in August.

: And if we check again the final of the 50 m backstroke and the bronze medal of Analia Pigrée?


18h50 : Caspar Corbeau 3rd, behind the Japanese Hanaguruma, first in this semi-final, and the Swedish Persson.

18h47 : We are patient with the semi-finals of the 200m breaststroke with my new favorite athlete, the Dutchman Caspar Corbeau. The Frenchman Antoine Viquerat, another swimmer from Toulouse, did not pass the series.

18h45 : France 4 shows us Xavier Marchand’s race in the 200m medley at the 1998 Worlds. Léon’s dad, born 4 years later, won silver.

6:41 p.m .: Already two French medals, one silver and one bronze. And the best is perhaps yet to come with Léon Marchand in the 200m medley…

18h38 : We’re getting back the 100m and Maxime Grousset’s silver medal. Great race, really.


6:36 p.m .: “Already in half, we were all tight”, smiles the Frenchwoman in front of the cameras of France 4. The American Berkoff grid Pigrée of a hundredth, but behind the Frenchwoman, it was also very hot.

18h34 : It was the Canadian Kylie Masse who won the 50m backstroke in 27’31.

6:33 p.m .: Bronze for the 20-year-old Guyanese! Splendid. A second French medal in a few minutes!!!

6:31 p.m .: Now it’s time for Amalia Pigrée in the 50m backstroke. Good medal luck too!

6:28 p.m .: On France 4, Grousset claims to be “really happy to be vice-world champion”. “In the race, I felt that I was going to do in the 3, maybe I was going to beat Popovici but I cracked at the end. “The very last meters in fact.

6:26 p.m .: GROUSSET 2ND!!! But it was played at 6 hundredths with the favorite Popovici, who won in 47”58. The 23-year-old New Caledonian long seemed able to win this 100m, which would have been a first for a Frenchman in a world championship…

6:16 p.m.: Marie Wattel, 4th, Charlotte Bonnet, 8th and last.

18h13 : The two French are in the same half, in this case the one who will leave immediately.

6:11pm : We continue with the semi-finals of the 100m freestyle, still for the ladies. We will of course follow Charlotte Bonnet and Marie Wattel.

6:09 p.m .: The reaction of the little Canadian > “I am in shock. so happy to have succeeded in this, it’s a magical moment, with all this audience. I can not believe it.”

6:07 p.m .: The title for the Canadian McIntosh! Barely 15 years old, and already world champion. Nothing to say, she was in the lead from start to finish.

18h04 : For now, we will follow the women’s 200m butterfly final. No French.

18h02 : The first highlight for us will be in 20 minutes, with the final of the 100m freestyle in Grousset. The great Léon will arrive a little later.

6:00 p.m.: YOOO the company! Good or good ? We meet again for another beautiful evening of swimming in Budapest. Maxime Grousset, Léon Marchand, we have plenty to do today.
