David Verraszto gets nine-month ban from Hungary for striking Gergely Gyurta


According to SwimmingWorld Magazine, the Hungarian Swimming Association has enacted a suspended nine-month ban of David Verraszto recently, for striking teammate Gergely Gyurta on the final night of the 2011 European Short Course Championships in Szczecin, Poland. This was presumably because Gyurta had sent a text message to Verraszto’s ex-girlfriend, as we heard in December. The implementation of the ban has been pushed back two years though, so that Verraszto can compete at the Olympics. Read more here on SwimmingWorld Magazine.
