BUDAPEST (AFP) France topped the European swimming championships with a record medal haul after the final days racing on Sunday saw Frederick Bousquet claim double gold. Bousquet, who also claimed silver in the 50m butterfly, powered to glory in the mens 50m freestyle and anchored the French team to an impressive victory in the 4x100m medley relay. The Frenchman won the individual event in 21.49 seconds ahead of Swedens Stefan Nystrand and another of Frances team, Fabien Gilot. I came to these European Championships to win the 50m freestyle - and I did it, beamed Bousquet. The French quartet wrapped up the medley relay in 3min 31.32sec to set the seal on an fantastic weeks swimming for their team, whose 21 medals, including seven gold, beat their previous record of 15. Our entire French swimming team couldnt have dreamed of a better conclusion, said Hugues Duboscq. Many races on Sunday were won by multiple medal winners and featured a tidy medal haul for host nation Hungary. Katinka Hosszu, who had already claimed gold in the 200m individual medley (IM) and silver in the 400m IM, won the womens 200m butterfly, with compatriot Zsuzsanna Jakabos taking silver. For the men, Laszlo Cseh retained his title in the 400m IM to add to his 200m IM crown. Team-mate David Verraszto won silver with Israels Gal Nevo in bronze. At the 150m turn I put everything I had into it, said Hosszu. I believed I could catch up with Zsuzsanna, so for my last event at these Championships I am very happy for the Hungarians that we finished one and two. Swedish veteran Therese Alshammar added the womens 50m freestyle title to her 50m butterfly gold and ruled out immediately going to pasture. Its going so well for me, so why should I retire? The 2012 Olympics are a great goal, said 32-year-old Alshammar. Russian Yuliya Efimova also added a gold in the womens 50m breast-stroke to her podium-topping performance in the 100m version of the stroke. For Britain, reigning Olympic 400m and 800m freestyle champion Rebecca Adlington won the womens 400m freestyle ahead of Frances Ophelie Cyriell Etienne and Denmarks Lotte Friis, who had claimed gold in both the 800 and 1500m free. After an awful performance in the 800m free, this race was very important to me, Adlington said. I was mentally strong enough to come back. The British womens quartet also claimed gold in the 4x100m medley relay, with their outstanding performer coming in the shape of Francesca Halsall. A great championships finish with a success for our team, said Halsall. Im pleased to have got two gold, two silver and one bronze medal, a medal tally I never expected. Its amazing.
