The Reporter of DIGI Sport became the sport director of the World Championship 2017

The smiling, well known reporter, Dávid Szántó (34) had a lot of challenge in his one-and half decade long carrier until these days, but as the newly named sport director of the WCH, he has to cope with a huge task, which is new for him. He started his carries as a youth national champion in breaststroke, but for now, he became a media personality with two diplomas. He thinks, thanks to his sport-past, broadcasting work and the roles he had at the occasions of the Hungarian Swimming Federation, he counts as an Insider in the world of swimming. These facts just give a good background to fulfil his new job successfully. 


“I am working for 13 year in the media-team of the International and European Swimming Federation, I could observe in this position the preparation of championships and afterwards the transactions of the occasions.” –told the sport director to the official webpage of the World Championship, placed in Budapest and Balatonfüred. “I exactly know the needs of sportswomen- and men from the minute they entered the swimming-pool until they will be transferred to the hotels by the official transfer busses. The procedure must work well, harmonised with other fields of organising, and meet the requirements of the FINA. The standard is really high, but we have an excellent team, and we will come up with the best solution in unexpected situations as well. “

Chronicler of Daniel Gyurta’s silver in Athens

He was just an entrant, and represented the Editorial of “Telesport” –sport program of the Hungarian Television- when he broadcasted the final of 200m breaststroke –which was his swim- event as well- at the Olympics in Athens.

„My good friend Dani Gyurta won unexpectedly the silver medal then, which lead me to the Heaven, because I became the chronicler one of the success of an unusual Olympics from Hungarian aspect. “- said the father of three children, who marked herself out with his “sportsfriendly” broadcasting.

When I was asked, if I know, when I could became the No.1 Hungarian commentator of swimming events, I just smiled and kindly answered, that two great reporters, who are my icons as well, are still in front of me.”

Voice of the WCH

He is proud to have been the voice of the successful Hungarian presentation in Barcelona, when he was part of the presentation team for the candidate of the WCH 2021.

„ Since then I stand a lot behind a microphone at events they were in connection with the World Championship, so my placement was expectable and official from now on.  My job –in nutshell- is to deal with all the disciplines of the World Championship, and I need to create such conditions together with the federations and professionals of disciplines, which cope with the sport-service of all of the world championships before. It was told to me several times, that I am able to push things to do of 28 hours, in 24 hours. I am not afraid to do it this time either. It is too soon to speak about, if I can work as a reporter or a speaker at the championship next to my job as a sport director. The point is, the directors of DIGI Sport –Hungarian sport channel- agreed with my new position, because this position is a success not just for me, but for the channel as well.”-told Dávid.
