Elias Winnington won the gold medal in the men’s 400m freestyle final in Budapest on Saturday.
Australia’s Lucas Martens of Brazil finished third in 1.63 seconds, followed by Brazil’s Gilherme Pereira da Costa in 3 minutes, 41.22 seconds.
Winnington said he was determined to enjoy the experience.
“I was not focusing on results,” the 22-year-old told reporters.
“You’ve probably seen me go out. I’m looking around and enjoying the experience. This is my first world championship. This is the second international personal event outside the Olympics. The Best in Me ”
Winnington came out fast and ran both 100m and 200m.
“Fun is fast, and that’s what it did tonight,” he said, adding that he was quick to “destroy” rivals Martens and Austrian Felix Obock.
Martin took first place after 250m and 300m after a world record of 0.8 seconds.
Winnington was the seventh disappointment at last year’s Olympics final. Ahmed Hafnaw, the stunning winner of Tokyo Gold Medal, did not enter Saturday’s race.
In the early morning heat Winnington faded and was eventually captured by Obock. The Australian had a reserve this time around and overcame the Wilting Martins in the final 50m.
Winnington: “I did not want to look like a coke, but I knew in my heart that I would become a world champion.
