Gwangju: Hungary's Kristof Milak shattered Michael Phelps's 200 metres butterfly world record Wednesday as he stormed to his first world title.

The 19-year-old, who has been flirting with the American's 10-year-old mark this season, clocked a blistering 1:50.73 in Gwangju with Japan's Daiya Seto pipping South African Chad le Clos for silver and shattered Phelps' 10-year-old mark by almost eight tenths.

Astonishingly, silver medallist Daiya Seto of Japan touched more than three seconds behind the 19-year-old Hungarian.

"It's a tremendous honour to beat such a great record," said Milak, who has already set his sights on next year's Olympics.

"Everyone will try to catch me, but I will be ready."
