Iron lady Katinka Hosszu raced 36 times during the 2013 Bergen Swim Festival


Read Speed Endurance

She was entered in 15 events, placed for the final in all of them, and with the 50 meter dashes being arranged as skins the races really added up for the girl dubbed swimmings «Iron Lady». For the skins she only miscalculated in the first heat of the 50 meters butterfly, otherwise she made the final event for those too.

She wasn’t taking it easy either setting a total of seven meet records along the way.
