Taking questions from journalists during a press conference, the new world record holder in the women’s 100m butterfly event admitted that she is not sure about her setting new records in the near future.

“It took me six years of very hard work to perfect my tactics. Every single year my time was shortening by several seconds, my speed was improving. And now I have the result I've been striving for. What about other heats? My chances are likely to be good especially in the 50 m butterfly heat but I’m not so sure that I’ll be able to set a new record in that heat as well. As for my freestyle skills, I am sorry to say they are not as perfect as I would like them to be. However it won’t distract me from contending for gold. In all the other heats I believe my chances are also pretty high,” said Sarah Sjostrom.
