The diving competitors are waiting for the Opening of the Dagály-Pool like no-one else! Hungary is one of the European countries, which does not have any “roofed” high- diving tower. Because of that reason, it is a wonder that on the second day of the European Championship in London, Villő Kormos ans Zsófia Reisinger won their third bronze medal in a row in 10m platform.
They arrived in London with the prognoses, that it would be a huge success to win a medal. The accepted the challenge at the end, despite they had just 6 trainings together in this year, before the start of the Championship.
“I was very sad, as the German duo has overtaken us before the last round, because it seemed, we will lose our chance to win a medal. But we could stand at the podium at the end, and it is a huge success for us! We had small mistakes in the dives, but we did not make any huge one, so I guess we deserved that result!
“We were at a high- level during the competition, but which is very important: we dived starkly, and we have this awesome result because of that! Concerning our situation, it is outstanding!
Katalin Haász, President of the Technical Committee:
“Because of the qualification for the Olympic Games we concentrated for the individual competition. The training situation is not the same at home like abroad, so we are waiting for the Dagály Swimming-Pool to get ready!”
