Now-a-days cannot be said that members of former Olympic Champions turn to sit down and grab a piece of paper and pen to write or on the computer – to  gather the former decades impulse and publish a book about their sporty past. Including the decades of memories in mind to lay the thoughts into words.

In brief „ For decades I was about to be a once-only Olympic champion. And there, on August, 9, 2016, at age 41, I was standing on the pond in the final of the Individual Contest. A few minutes later, I drove to 14:10, I was stretched out of reach of gold or even closer. However, I did not find a score more than once, but I lost 15: 14. I knew exactly what I missed. That I will not have another Olympic finals to come.”

To look back on the great sportsman’s perceived positive and negative experiences, the book is really exciting from the perspective of a sportsman. The book is only published in Hungarian.
