Katinka Hosszu: ‘Amazing to share success with someone you love’


It’s a marriage that is literally 24/7. One of swimming’s biggest stars of Rio 2016 is coached by her husband and it’s a relationship that prompted much debate as she stormed to three gold medals.

Many have questioned whether it’s possible to navigate the complications involved in a dynamic involving athlete and coach as well as wife and husband. Katinka Hosszu, though, wouldn’t have things any other way.

“It’s amazing to share it [success]with someone that you really love,” Katinka told CNN’s Don Riddell, as she reflected on her marriage and partnership with husband and coach Shane Tusup. “So it’s been really special for us.”
