Daniel Gyurta’s expectations for the Herning 2013 European SC Championships


Read the interview here on herning2013.com

Daniel Gyurta is a swimmer who does not only show great results, he also value great sportsmanship. In 2012 Gyurta won the 200 m breaststroke at the Olympics, but earlier that year Gyurta’s competitor and friend, Alexander Dale Oen, passed away at a training camp in Arizona. After his Olympic victory, Gyurta had a replica of his gold medal created and gave it to the family of Norwegian Alexander Dale Oen.

Last year at the Olympics in London you won the 200 m breaststroke and this year you won the 200 m breaststroke at the World Championship in Barcelona being the first person ever to win three gold medals in this event at Worlds. How can you use these great results in your future career?

– It was a great pleasure to win again, and this success can currently motivate me. I always manage to find new challenges, which are worth of working to it.
