2017 FINA World Championships

  • Hi everyone! :) Only 4 days and on Friday begin the FINA World Championships in my home country Hungary, in Budapest and Balatonfüred. The athletes will participate in swimming, open water swimming, synchronised swimming, diving, high diving and of course water polo. The two main places will be the Danube Arena in Budapest for swimmers and Hajós Alfréd uszoda(swimming stadium)in Budapest for water polo teams. Open water swimmings will be held at the lake Balaton in Balatonfüred and other events will be held in differenct places in Budapest.
    This tournament will be Budapest´s(and Hungary´s)biggest event ever, so I am looking for it so much. Unluckily I didn´t get ticket for Hungary´s water polo matches, but I am in a competition where I will have chance to get tickets for the Men´s water polo final, Women´s water polo final or the Swimming final day. I will be very happy if I could get there somehow.
    However the TV can broadcast the matches/competitions too, maybe in your country too.
    In Hungary we wait a lots of medals, espacially from our swimmers(Hosszú, Gyurta, Cseh, Kapás, Kenderesi, Verrasztó siblings, and so on :D ), from our men´s water polo team(we didn´t win tournament since Barcelona(2013, World Cup) and last time in Budapest we won silver medal at water polo EURO in 2014 and from our girls team, they are the new European Champions from 2016, Belgrade and they played a balanced match against the world and olympic champion USA. Let´s see it.

    Unluckily Hungary hasn´t won yet any medal but these weren´t ´our sports´. :D
    We had good places in open water swimming(eight place from Anna Olasz in 10 km and seventh place from Kristóf Rasovszky in 5 km).
    Today begins water polo tournament for women´s, our girls play against Japan:flag_jp: at 20.10. GO Hungary! :flag_hu:

  • Today our girls won against Japan :flag_jp: 20:11, so they began well the championship. There were interesting scores, USA :flag_us: won 24:2 against South Africa:flag_ss: (maybe the match of the best and worth team of the tournament :D ). Next match against France :flag_fr: , it will be probably the same difficulty. As our captain, Attila Bíró said our World Cup begins on Thursday against Netherlans:flag_nl: . It will be a difficult match, we played against them the Euro final last year in Belgrade, but there we won.

    Interesting score from Canada against Montenegro, Montenegro already won 8:4, but Canada could come back to 8:8.
    Spain-Greece match was the match of the day I think, but it wasn´t as good match now.
    Serbia had some problems with the defend against South Africa, but they didn´t have to give their best.
    I watched France-Italy too, France had some chances, but Italy easily won the match in the 3rd and 4th period.
    And we played our first game against Australia. We waited that this match won´t be easy, Australia won 1:0, but we could turn the match. Dénes Varga was very good in attacking, almost everybody scored and Viktor Nagy saved well. We deserved this win and this a big success to win against Australia with 10 goals. Go Hungary! :D
