Wow, Gyurta spoke Norwegian when he honored Dale Oen with a special gold medal


My utmost respect, Dániel Gyurta’s pronounciation was really good, when he presented this gold medal to Alexander Dale Oen’s family. Read more on for instance Speed Endurance, Swim News and SwimmingWorld Magazine

As I promised at the London Olympics, I will present a medal to the family of my friend Alex.
I am convinced that Alex would have won gold at the Olympics, so this medal is representative of what he could not achieve because of the tragic event. With Alex’ death, Norway didn’t only lose a great swimmer and athlete, but a fantastic human being.
