Mélanie Henique won the silver medal in the 50m butterfly at the World Swimming Championships behind Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom, three-time defending champion and once again crowned, on Friday in Budapest.
Henique, 29, brought France its seventh Worlds medal, before Maxime Grousset’s bronze in the 50m freestyle a few minutes later. With a time of 25 sec 31/100, she was only beaten by the Swedish Sjostrom, 28, already three-time defending champion and who won again (24.95). China’s Zhang Yufei completes the podium (25.32).
“I was aiming for the win but frankly with everything that happened this year it’s beautiful I’m happyDeclared moved the swimmer from Amiens at the microphone of France 4. She is also doing better than in 2011, when she was bronze medalist over the distance in Shanghai.
