Kristóf Rasovszky has performed really well in 2016. The 19-year-old Hungarian finished fifth in the FINA/HOSA Marathon Swimming World Cup in June, and won gold in the Junior World Championships in the Netherlands and in the European Junior Open Water Championships in Italy in 10 km.

Kristóf Rasovszky has performed really well in 2016. The 19-year-old Hungarian finished fifth in the FINA/HOSA Marathon Swimming World Cup in June, and won gold in the Junior World Championships in the Netherlands and in the European Junior Open Water Championships in Italy in 10 km.

„It’s true, it’s been a great season for me so far, I could reach my goals” – Rasovszky said. „I haven’t been injured or ill, and the good results have done a good turn for my confidence.”

The young athlete is competing in the pool as well, he took part in the Olympics in Rio, too, but he wasn’t satisfied with his performance in 1500 m.

„The Olympics came just a couple of weeks after the Junior World Champs, and I have to say it was very hard to switch from 10 km to 1500 m. I didn’t have too much time between the Olympics and the European Junior Champs either, but it was much easier to switch back to 10 km, as the gold medal shows. To tell you the truth I was surprised that I finished 10 seconds ahead of the German guy in the end, but I wasn’t said because of that”.

Rasovszky, who already had some notable results in 2015 both in the European Junior Open Water Championships and the European Games in Baku, has another big task this year: he starts in the Chinese round of the Open Water World Cup Series in October, where he wants to finish in the top 8. Next year, however, is all about the 2017 FINA World Championships.

„There will be some fitness camps and different competitions including World Cup events, but I have to admit the World Champs is already on my mind. It will be really fantastic to compete in Balatonfüred, in front of thousands of Hungarian fans. I can hardly wait for it, and I will try to do my best.”
