Bernek Péter is traveling for medals to Rio
Péter Bernek would be happy to be called for doping- control, especially, if it had been after the final of 400m freestyle. The reason would be ideally, because it is obligatory for medallists, and according to a less ideally situation, one of the participants of the final is usually called up to for a test.
„It would be a dream come true, if I could step in to the test-room as a medallist. My goal to stand at the podium came into my mind after the Short- Course World Championship in Doha, and it is getting stronger since that. – said Bernek. In my own interest, to came my dream true, I gave up my rest-day, Sunday. Since then I feel myself stronger, because I cannot bear more. – said the world champion, who is in a training camp in Florida, right now.
He is competing in Győr at the nationals in April, and at the European Championship in London in May, but before that, he will not have easier trainings.
“Concern to the London European Championship, as I finished the 200m, 400m and 1500m freestyle -it will take 4 or 5 days- I will pack immediately, and leave for Budapest with the first plane. Just to leave out less trainings. In the big rush it could be awesome to have a good result. I would feel better in the last citical 11 weeks- period on the way to Rio.- he said.
