Zsolt Borkai is convinced that László Cseh will be successful in the 2017 FINA World Championships. President of the Hungarian Olympic Committee feels sorry for the swimmer, who finished only 7th in the 200 m butterfly event in the Olympics, but he is sure Cseh will get a good result in next year’s competition in the new Dagaly Complex. The Hungarian swimmmer can of course improve even in Rio in Friday night’s 100 m butterfly final.
„I am really satisfied” – Borkai said about the results of the Hungarian athletes in Rio.
„It is amazing what they have produced so far. We can be pleased with the results, I hope the rest of the Games will be as successful for us as the first part.”
The president who won gold in pommel horse in Seoul in 1988, praised primarily the swimmers and the fencers, stressing that Katinka Hosszú represents another dimension.
„Katinka Hosszú is amazing. She is a fantastic athlete, the three gold medals and the world record speaks for itself.”
Borkai hopes for more Hungarian medals, among others from the water polo teams.
