Swimmer Katinka Hosszú has filed for divorce, which can soon officially end her relationship with her American husband-coach Shane Tusup reported blikk.hu.
Katinka married Tusup in August 2013. This was one of the most successful husband-wife teams in the sport. Under her husband’s guidance Katinka won three Olympic gold medals, countless world championships titles, and various top athlete of the year awards.
Last November, the couple announced that their relationship was going through a difficult period.
As we wrote, they spent the Christmas apart and arrived at the top athlete’s awards ceremony separately.
According to rumors, Katinka might team up with Spanish swimmer Mireia Belmonte’s coach Frédéric Vergnoux.
Tusup receives about US$4000 monthly salary from the Hungarian Swimming Federation as Katinka’s trainer, which will be cut off as soon as Katinka announces the name of her new coach.
