Few Hungarians expected success and glory during Euro 2016, but Hungary surprised. With the Summer Olympics approaching Hungarians expect much more!
In the period between August 5th and August 21st there will be more than 100 Hungarians traveling to Brazil and to Rio to defend the glory of Hungary. During the London Olympics in 2012 Hungary was one of the top ten nations when it came to gold medals, and now the Hungarians hope that their contestants will compete just as well this time.
When to cheer for the Hungarians during the Summer Olympics?
If you want to cheer for the Hungarian contestants during the Summer Olympics in Rio, then you should watch the water related sports. They have some brilliant contestants in swimming, their national teams are outsiders in the water polo competition both for men and women, they have brilliant contestants in rowing, fencing, pommel horse and some other sports.
Their biggest stars are Katinka Hosszu (swimming), Daniel Gyurta (swimming), Áron Szilágyi (fencing), Krisztian Pars (Athletics) and Laszlo Cseh (swimming). Look out for these and all the other Hungarian contestants as you get ready for some late nights up watching the Summer Olympics.
