Laszlo Cseh of Hungary has beaten his own world record in the men's 400-meter individual medley at the European short-course swimming championships, while the Netherlands broke its world record in the women's 200 freestyle relay.

Cseh won in 3 minutes, 57.27 seconds on Friday to better the mark of 3:59.33 he set two years ago in Debrecen, Hungary.

Inge Dekker, Hinkelien Schreuder, Saskia de Jonge and Ranomi Kromowidjojo won in 1:33.25 to surpass the previous record of 1:33.80 set by Netherlands last year in Rijeka, Croatia.

Five world records have been set at the championships, one of the last meets before full-body, high-performance suits are banned on Jan. 1. Forty-three world records fell at this year's world championships in Rome.
