Eight-time World Champion! – Katinka Hosszú claimed gold medal again in 200 IM

On 22nd July, one year and two days before the start of Tokyo 2020, Katinka Hosszú, founder and swimmer of Iron Swim Budapest, won 200 IM in the World Championships for the fourth time consecutively. Though her coach, Árpád Petrov, was extremely excited moments before the start, when Katinka jumped into water, he already knew and felt, that everything would be great. So it was.

Congratulations, Katinka and Árpi, that was your first World Championships title together. Keep going on!
