Julia Kiss, the double agent.
Julia Kiss is a real ’double agent’ in relation to the 2017 FINA World Championships. The former synchronized swimmer plays a key role in organizing the event.
„When I was a child, I preferred typical women’s sports like aerobic and fitness, and then, at the age of 9 I visited a synchronized swimming training, and it was love at first sight for me. The truth is, this love will last forever…” – Julia said.
She became part of the Hungarian junior and later the senior national team, participated in the 2006 and the 2010 European Championships held in Budapest.
„I took part in the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan, but shortly after that I had to retire due to an injury. I graduated in economics, and I have always been interested in the ’other’ side of a sport event, so I was very happy to be invited for this job here at the Bp2017 Nonprofit Ltd.”
However, Julia will not only be seen behind her desk in her office, but also in the pool. Last year she started competing again with her former partner Dorottya Kovács, they have been participating in masters competitions. They plan to take part in the 2017 Fina World Championships’ masters event as well. Julia promises to do her best to be a good ’double agent’ during next year’s big meeting.
